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.
