ORGIASTIC HYPER-PLASTIC
HEKUMALLINEN, HYPERMUOVINEN

Paul Bush | Denmark 2020 | Animation

Film is available only in Finland.

An animated extravaganza of plastic collected from beaches, roadsides, attics and junk shops. This is an elegy to a love affair that has gone sour, a fond farewell to that most beautiful material that has enslaved our planet – plastic. This six minute experimental film is a development of Paul Bush’s pioneering technique of animated photographs and stop frame animation of objects.
