Watching TV

Canada, 1994 (MIFF 1995, Animation)

Director: Christopher Hinton

Giving the term 'overkill' a whole new meaning, this amusingly vicious parody of TV news, is a quickfire montage of cartoonish violence where everyone and everything imaginable gets it. Has its point blank morality and shoots it too. Fun and more than a little sick!
