Pig and Bear Go To Market

Rodney Werden

1993, 13:00 minutes, B&W, English


Pig and Bear... is a fable /allegory about two animals whose desire for independence leads them to start a business. Although business is good, with lots of donuts and hot potatoes changing hands, profit eludes them. To their amazement, they are left with only the five cents they began with. Pig and Bear... was adapted from an old Czech folk tale that has survived as an axiom of human nature -- to have one's own business is a panacea for personal freedom.
