SYNOPSIS

A celebration of the animated line, these selected works dance, transform, and challenge ideas with deceptive simplicity.

High Fidelity 1976 dir. Antoinette Starkiewicz (3 mins)

“A glamorous girl dancer performs a complicated routine designed to ensnare male dancers - but are they what they seem?” The British Film Institute

Dudu and the Line 1982 dir. Steve French (14 mins)

“Dudu encounters an extraordinary animated line which undergoes continual transformation to jazz.” The National Film and Sound Archive, Canberra

The Mad Century 2000 dir. Pierce Davison (3 mins)

The Mad Century is a half-hour animated satirical reminder of the political shifts and experiments that made the 20th century so dramatic. The Cartoon Factor allows observation of the obvious contentious areas. It is a high speed story of the events that got us where we are.” The National Film and Sound Archive, Canberra
