THE COLORS THAT COMBINE TO MAKE WHITE ARE IMPORTANT

DIRECTOR: BARRY DOUPÉ - BRITISH COLUMBIA (VANCOUVER)

(EXP) Doupé’s film explores the power structure within a failing Japanese glass factory. Two parallel storylines involving the investigation of a suspected employee and that of a stolen painting converge to reveal an exposition on gender and desire. “A deliberately artificial-looking computer-animated feature set mainly in a Japanese office and filled with hilarious non sequiturs (‘I made miniature versions of giant sandwiches; they are the same size as regular sandwiches’), it sometimes suggests an Adult Swim program in its warped sensibility. But Doupé’s dialogue is much headier than anything on TV, with considerations of gender inequality, modern art, and existentialism peeking through the strange humor. The movie also concludes, daringly, with a 45-minute sex scene during which one of the characters (a strong-willed secretary and art thief named Leena) delivers a stream-of-conscious monologue about everything and nothing.”—Chicago Reader
