CANNED MEAT (Immobilized)

Terril Calder

2008, 03:30 minutes, colour, English


Things had gone stale all around Ida Calder and her illusions had expired. All of her hope fermented. When things were no longer looking so lovely for her she decided to lock herself away as not to deface her youthful image. CANNED MEAT is set in a rural Canadian trailer park as we follow Ida on a surreal stop motion animated journey through the depths of her mind and body to discover if there was ever really a person in there?

“Immobilized” is an excerpt from
CANNED MEAT (The Whole Damn Can).
