Plasmo the Bookworm

Australia, 1993 (MIFF 1994, Youth Film Festival)

Director: Anthony Lawrence

Searching through the holographic starcharts, Plasmo discovers a destructive force at work in the library of Monjotroldeclipdoc! Armed with nothing but his goodness, niceness and friendliness, he finds himself engaged in a race against time to find the source of the destruction and save centuries of imagination from ruin. The film's enduring lesson is that books should be consumed but not EATEN!
