Elbowing (1979) [Short]

Canada (MIFF 1981 , Animation (1))
Director: Paul Driessen

The scene: a long line of straight-faced, identical people, using their elbows to get to the top. They pass a nudge along the line until the first person, the "top", knocked off his feet by the impact of the final nudge. Somewhere among them stands a more colorful character, the non-conformist, who leans toward the lighter side of the line.
