A MAN AND HIS DOG OUT FOR AIR

by Robert BREER
1957 / b&w / sound / 1S / 3' 00

Sound: Frannie Breer.
People seem to read in the title of the film much more than what I put in it when I made the film. I can describe it as a stew: something recognizable comes to the surface and disappears immediately. Seeing the man and his dog at the end of the film is a bit of a joke..., it's the absurdity that makes the audience accept what is actually a free play of pure lines and rhythms.
"This is one of Breer's best animated films, one of the best known and most accessible too. The lines intersect and gallop across the screen, as if they wanted to become forms, while sounds "from outside" are heard on the soundtrack. At the very end, the lines finally come together to form the momentary illustration of the film's title." F. Camping.
