The Men in the Park

Canada, 1971 (MIFF 1973)

Director: George Geertsen

A novel animation film showing a tranquil oasis in the big city, where those not involved in its life find a place to sit and watch the world go by. Sketched in heavy pencil, many of the figures actually move, giving the effect of an artist's sketchbook having come to life.
