Casting Call

Susan Britton

1979, 36:00 minutes, colour, English


A moody, sinister piece wherein the means of production, although sulky and reluctant, control the production. After a few halting attempts at plot, fear and loathing take over and the entire project is abandoned to float in the dreamy blue glow of self doubt.
