Ülo Pikkov "Dialogos" (2008)

I should be most surprised if today's Dialogos fails to elicit some laughter for I found the experimental piece to be very funny indeed. Ülo Pikkov wittily casts an anarchic eye on otherwise everyday occurrences in a quick-fire series of visual gags. The Associate Professor in the Animation Department at the Estonian Academy of the Arts must be a gas in the lecture room. The figures are drawn directly on to print film, resulting in a roughly hewn style that is entirely appropriate for a film that lambasts modern life.
