The Occasion

UK, 1994 (MIFF 1994, Animation Focus)

Director: Susan Loughlin

In a moment of fantasy, a young girl imagines she is the centre of attraction at an adult party. There is a dark side to this beautifully drawn and paced fantasy when the girl is confronted with the realisation of reality.
