Feral Television

Australia, 1990 (MIFF 1990, Animation)

Director: Damien Ledwich

In this animation televisions are wild and noble creatures living an idyllic lifestyle in their natural mountain habitat. They graze freely, entertaining each other until they are rounded up and herded into cities. This is the adventure of a television which escapes the captured herd and the eyeballs which want to use it.
