The Bowel Houndromat

Australia, 1986 (MIFF 1987, Super 8)

Director: Chris Windmill

The Bowel Houndromat tells the story of two groups of advertising executives from different social echelons.

All the executives suffer strained domestic relationships, and all claim to have produced a prestigious advertisement for a bank. The film is told in the language of advertising - ie. incoherence and childish crudity.
