Hatsy's Royal Tea Party

Marlene Madison

1997, 05:00 minutes, colour, English


Hatsy's Royal Tea Party was compiled from random video clips, all pertaining to the subject of tea. Swayed by the Dadaist movement, this five-minute experimental video is chock full of absurdity, good humour, and bizarre characters. While Hatsy's Royal Tea Party touches upon the history of tea in the West, its unconventional narrative style lends itself well to address an array of social, political, and pop culture issues while giving careful consideration to set composition, colour and editing rhythm.
