Broken Down Film (1985) [Short]

Japan (MIFF 1995 , Buried Treasures – Osamu Tezuka)
Director: Osamu Tezuka

A string of gags based on 20s-style animation and the self-reflexiveness of Windsor McCay's surreal comic strips from the same period. While the gags are familiar, the extent to which Tezuka pushes the medium's break-down is quite extreme. Tezuka himself considered that if this film Is booed off by the audience, the screening would be a success.
