Juke Bar

Canada, 1989 (MIFF 1990, Animation)

Director: Martin Barry

A funny tale of frenzied, pixillated puppet insects who smoke cigars, dance and wield power tools. The insects enter a juke box and prove they really know how to have a party, however, the juke box is not all that it seems.

A film from the National Film Board of Canada which is mainly just a lot of fun.
