Hothouse 10: September 8 — November 28, 2014

Frances Adair Mckenzie


In this surrealist stop-motion animation, two disembodied wigs give in to their desires and grow themselves into something a little more whole.

Inspired by found sound of two dogs growling, decadently delicious, and produced as part of the 10th edition of the NFB’s Hothouse apprenticeship.
