Possession

UK, 1991 (MIFF 1992, Animation)

Director: Phil Mulloy

Using the story of Little Red Riding Hood as a starting point, this unusual animation tran­scends into a dark and bleak anomaly, of chaos, destruction and paranoia. A disturbing indictment of the 20th Century psyche. As the child narrator tells us, "If s not exactly Walt Disney". (AA) See also: Cowboys
