Food (for) Thought

Australia, 1994 (MIFF 1995, Animation)

Director: Daniel Crooks

Food. Religion. Televison. Using a multiplicity of styles, this technically accomplished animation seeks to present a critique of religion and consumer culture. With stylistic references to Ian Svankmaier and the Brothers Quay this film makes an impressive idiosyncratic statement.
