Shock

Bulgaria, 1996 (MIFF 1997, Animation)

Director: Zlativ Radev

The creator loses his omnipotence in this deftly animated macho battle between the animator and his brawny sketch. The reason for their virulent duel, a mere out-line; an eye-lash battering, curvaceous and cute Pamela Andersonesque cartoon. Deeply ironic and wonderfully entertaining.
