Brother

Australia, 1999 (MIFF 2000, Animation)

Director: Adam Elliot

Brother is the final film in the acclaimed trilogy that also includes Uncle and Cousin. It is a claymation about the antics of an asthmatic boy and his brother. Although this film is darker than the previous instalments, it still carries Elliot's humorous observations of everyday life, and his peculiar blend of endearing characters and simple, classic narration.
