ARTICHOKE BOY, 2min., USA, Animation
Directed by Phil E. Eichinger
It's a summer day, with bright sunshine and just a slight breeze. However, troubling thoughts about color, gender and sexuality distract a young artichoke as they sit alone on a swing, swaying back and forth. Thoughts, wants, and fears about their place in the world are explored as Artichoke Boy monologues throughout this summer day.
