SYNOPSIS

Thanks a lot Duchamp 2017 dir. Ella Carey (18.53 mins)

“Thanks A Lot Duchamp is an art lover’s lament about how art once required skills and vision but now any found object can be placed in a gallery and given the same respect and value.” Flickerfest

Tales from the Powder Room 2002 dir. Darren Burgess (12.25 mins)

“Tales from the Powder Room is a clay animation film that follows the course of cathartic reminiscences of times gone by from Lola's beginning as a little boy when she farewells sobriety in a spiraling abyss of flowery hats, stilettos, makeup and alcohol.” Screen Australia

Medusa First Date 2004 dir. Pierce Davison (3 mins)

“Things aren't looking too promising when Medusa goes out on a first date with mild mannered accountant Eric. Everyone's naturally a little nervous (what with the snakes for hair) and it's only when Medusa is invited up for coffee that things take a turn for the better, that is until she introduces herself to his parrot...” Pierce Davison

Cousin 1998 dir. Adam Elliot (4 mins)

“The narrator (voiced by William McInnes), tells the story of his childhood friend and Cousin, who has celebral palsy and always smells of liquorice. Part of the trilogy of short films about his family that began with ‘Uncle’ (1996) and ended with ‘Brother’ (1999). Employing claymation and a monochromatic palette, we see an evolution of what has become Elliot’s signature style.” Antoinette Starkiewicz

Ward 13 2003 dir. Peter Cornwell (14.30 mins)

“Ben is in a hospital where the doctors and nurses behave suspiciously, one patient has a dark green face and there are strange puppy dogs. Has he woken in WARD 13?” Screen Australia

Meanwhile, At the Abandoned Factory… 2020 dir. Michael Cusack (16 mins)

“Meanwhile, at the Abandoned Factory celebrates the heyday of cliff-hanger TV serials. Can our intrepid reporter find her way out of this classic dilemma?” Flickerfest
