About the Film

A suitably comic interpretation of an irreverent poem about a saint who became obsessed with the world of pulses. Using stop-frame animation, a variety of beans, and a clockwork priest.

Lisa Risbec is a photographer and filmmaker, specialising in stop-motion animation. Interested in telling stories visually and often using narration, her influences include old folk stories and songs, eastern european cities and towns, experimental animation and shadow puppetry (amongst others). Preferring to work with a traditional stop motion technique, she uses her own photography, found and made objects to create mixed media collage style animations.

Showing as part of Version Verse, SAT 14 NOV, 1pm, Cornerhouse.
