Hero Sandwich

USA, 1996 (MIFF 1997, Animation)

Director: Andrew Collen, Amy Collen

Two anecdotes about awkward but funny encounters between users and non-users of disabled parking over car spaces. Inspired by an impromptu conversation which is used on the sound track, rough edges and all, the film is fluently and cheerfully illustrated in sand animation. From the aptly named Happy Trails Production Company.
