Human Behavioural Case Studies

Australia, 1996 (MIFF 1997, Animation)

Director: Adam Benjamin Elliot

In this cleverly drawn grotesquene with a definite whiff of the school yard, three odd children empower themselves by maximising limited resources. James, Oscar and Nicki collect and ingest various revolting objects and substances, and attach domestic appliances to their own bodies and those of vulnerable relatives with some life changing results.
