Planes, Trains and Automania

Haut de la page

An animated excursion into the world of transportation. The Balgonie Birdman: Each night when folks in Balgonie were asleep, Bill Gibson was busy in his workshop. He was building a flying machine! It's a tall tale about a man with a dream--inspired by a real individual (8 min. 52 sec.). Trawna Tuh Belvul: It's a mad wackity-wackity ride! Whimsical animation blends with the evocative rhythms of the trainride in Earle Birney's poem (read by Birney) celebrating the trip to Belleville (14 min. 28 sec.). Automania: What a morning for our hero! The remote control gizmo won't open his car door. How can he get to work? Frustration piles on frustration--until he finally hits on a solution. A film without words (5 min. 31 sec.). The Romance of Transportation in Canada: A lighthearted tongue-in-cheek history of transportation moves from early trailblazers to the age of rockets and beyond (10 min. 48 sec.).

1996, 39 min 25 s
