A tone poem [in which] two woodland sprites dance about, atop power lines and among flowers and leaves, while being pursued. Everyone spends some time pulling levers to switch trains, too.
“Anthony Gross is best known as a printmaker and painter. The animated films he made with American Hector Hoppin reflect his distinctive graphic style, but add a sophisticated choreography of lines and space. The escapist theme of the film developed from an earlier suite of etchings called SORTIE D'USINE (1931).” - David Curtis
