Auto portraits (Carface)

An attack on the power of the petrol industry, on the dominance of the car in our modern life, in the destruction of the environment and, most devastating of all, the blind acceptance of it all that allows it! Claude Cloutier (Sleeping Betty, The Trenches) has threatening singing cars lined up performing “Que Sera, Sera” “Whatever Will Be, Will Be”. Lasting only 4 minutes this fast paced, focused film message is both original and penetrating. The film is an excellent demonstration of what can be achieved in short animations and why duration of a film is no guarantee of quality or of accuracy in story telling. Cloutier achieves in under five minutes what others take two hours to say. A great little film and thanks, once again, to the National Film Board of Canada for their faith in this talented film maker,
