TINY SUN BATHERS
Directors: Olivier Boulanger &
Country of Origin: Brussels, Belgium
Color - 2.05 minutes. (1998)
A striking "hand-painted" parody of Chinese propaganda films
that were posthumously inflicted on Europe in the 1960s.
As the filmmakers note
"With the involuntary help of The Central Newsreel and Documentary.
Congratulations! Your film "Tiny Sunbathers"
was given the award for best experimental film in the SUFF festival!
In a couple of weeks you will receive the trophy, which is a handcrafted,
one of a kind handmade stand with a mounted 24carat gold-plated 400ft
16mm film reel.
We screened Tiny Sunbathers twice: first as a video part of a shorts program,
then in 35mm opening for the feature film Night Train.
It was beautiful on the full-size theatre screen!
OK, once again congratulations.
Yours, Steve Creson, Festival Director.
