Freak Box (1:15, color, 1999) Directed by Brett Ingram
What do a monkey, a robot, and two numbed out teenagers have in common? The symbiotic processes of the idiot box, as it turns out. Freak Box is a stop-motion satire of the lulling evils of television, an electro-mechanical circus where viewers lose - and find - themselves in the hopelessness of the pixel array.
Freak Box screened at twenty-three festivals and alternative cinema venues across the U.S., winning “Best of Show” at The Marvels Exhibition at Artspace in Raleigh, NC.
