Walkshort

New Zealand, 1988 (MIFF 1989, Fiction)

Director: William Toefper


From New Zealand duo The Front Lawn, an original and entertaining short that is not so much a narrative film as a film about narrative and narration. Composed simply of a chain of encounters in the street, with accompanying voice-over, it is frenetic in pace and wryly amusing in tone. - (FF)
