Excursion

Australia, 2002 (MIFF 2003, Fiction)

Director: Cris Jones

"You wake up. That's how it always starts. You find yourself in a four-walled cell, the scent of all your lost dreams hanging in the air". So begins this absurd, visually inventive and comically-charged depiction of one man's efforts to escape his mundane existence.
