Ratropolis

Australia, 1988 (MIFF 1989, Animation)

Director: Jenni Zipporah, Bix Nussey

A witty, mixed-media animation that philosophises on the idea of the rats holding the key to the meaning of life. The world is just one 'Skinner Box' in this hypothesis that uses many different animation techniques to investigate the theme. — (TC)
