Cat & Rat (Tiger, Snake, Pig)

Howie Shia

2001, 12:00 minutes, colour


An animated short telling the story of three role-playing game friends who construct and reconstruct the myth of the Chinese Zodiac as variations on Saturday morning cartoons. Reality and fantasy feed one another in a self-perpetuating smorgasboard of wacky animal adventures and convoluted, inconclusive dialogue.
