Lunch

USA, 1990 (MIFF 1990)

Director: Michael Dwass

This film started as a series of still photographs that were used as the basis for the drawings. About 2,500 drawings are included in the 5 minutes of film. Although this film is animated it is experimental in style. The sound tracks push this non-traditional form further.
