The End of the World in Four Seasons

Canada, 1995 (MIFF 1996, Animation)

Director: Paul Driessen

This film is magical with seriously bizarre overtones. While you may find it challenging to track eight stories simultaneously on one screen, try! Paul Driessen has taken some strange paths since working on Yellow Submarine.Join the inflatable camel, the polar bear, the mosquito and others including a cast of endless eggs as they accompany Vivaldi through the four seasons.
