Made as part of a Triton Gallery show to publicize the poster art of Canadian artist Vittorio Fiorucci, filmmaker Wakefield Poole cut apart posters and hand-animated the film using his 8mm camera to create stop-motion. The film was combined with dancers, lighting and projections to create and innovative gallery show.

*I do not know the intent of the filmmaker = reviews are typically nothing but opinion and speculation. This one is no different.*

This is a cool little piece - almost like a trailer when only the film is on. I'd like to see it with the performance the description describes. Not unlike sections of David Lynch's the Alphabet or Terry Gilliam's Monty Python animation, although not as unnerving or funny.

It may have helped if I was more familiar with Vittorio Fiorucci's poster work. Admittedly while it may be a solid view for people who are his fans, as a non-fan it didn't do much for me personally - which is not to say the film isn't quality at all - because it is certainly clever and well done. The music is quite tribal and is a strange mix for the illustrations but again, I can see it making the performance aspect a huge part of it's appreciation.

Other-worldy experience. I want to walk around in a world made of old posters. Was reminded of the children's book "Harold and the Purple Crayon." Love the Japanese Noh music used for the soundtrack.

Love the animation...wish it was longer though.
