Slim Pickings

Australia, 1998 (MIFF 1999, Animation)

On a hungry planet a close friendship is put to the test. Anthony Lucas masterfully animates his two clay characters creating four and a half minutes of humour, suspense and a great deal of pathos. Slim Pickings shows the magic of animation at its best.
