Sex and Violence

USA, 1997 (MIFF 1998, Animation)

Director: Bill Plympton

A compendium of short animated gags that push the boundaries of good taste and humour from one of America's most controversial animators. Plympton shows us the trouble confused priorities can cause, as well as offering up a series of satirical vignettes which cover every thing from the southern migration of hair in the aging male to the old adage that carrots are good for eyesight.
