Flux

Canada, 2002 (MIFF 2003, Animation)

Director: Chris Hinton

With deft dark humour Chris Hinton plays with the speed of life. Like life itself, Flux is packed with almost more than you can absorb. Vivid as a Miro painting, it reverberates with the twang of a plucked string. Screened at Toronto, Annecy, Clermont-Ferrand, Ann Arbor and Palm Springs.
