Sunset Strip (1996)

UK (MIFF 1997 , Animation)

A purely abstract animation. As implied by the title, the animator was inspired by sunsets the film was created as a day-to-day animated diary of 365 sunsets - including those obscured by clouds - by painting directly onto a continuous strip of 35mm film leader using materials ranging from nail varnish, hair, bleach, net stocking and magnolia petals. The result is an animated visual display of abstract imagery, with close affinity to experimental animation. The repeated image of a circle and variations on the theme create a visually hypnotic film.
