Leunig: Doom and Gloom

Australia, 2000 (MIFF 2000, Animation)

Director: Andrew Horne

The unmistakable humour and anguish of Michael Leunig's illustrated modern-day fables make the leap from newsprint to screen in this well crafted model animation film. Award-winning Australian animator Andrew Home brings to life one of Leunig's most popular characters and follows his encounters with 'the smell of doom'. Featuring poetic narration and an engaging soundtrack, this is a must for Leunig fans.
