ASPARAGUS 

Release year: 1979

 

This film shows a strong sense of femininity through a colorful and lively dream. The astonishing cel animation pushes the blank-faced protagonist into the fantasy field of asparagus. In muddiness, the artist opens her Pandora's Box to release rare wonders....

ASPARAGUS not only made itself the winner at the Oberhausen Short Film Festival, Germany, but also catapulted maker Suzan PITT to the front ranks of indie animation.

 

JOY STREET

Release year: 1995

 

In a house on Joy Street, the lonely heroine spends her life with spirits and cigarettes, but could never resolve the grief deep inside. In a long night, the person who she could never reach on the other end of the phone makes her cut her wrist. At this moment, the monkey ornament on the table is given life in the woman's dream; it turns on the radio, and sad tears flood the fallen woman. The monkey carries the woman out of the house. Eventually, the woman is awakened under a big tree and feels the joy of life in the chaotic reality.

JOY STREET was honored best short film awards at the Sundance Film Festival and New York Film Festival.

Release year: 2006

 

The film tells the story of a Mexican drunkard doctor, who misses his youth and longs for death. However, in his hallucination after drunkenness, he witnesses miracles in his patients and is thus enlightened by God to reconcile himself with the past.

The film is based on a series of cartoons by Suzan PITT, and written by her son Blue KRANING. The production of the fantastic and splendid landscapes in the film is more complex than those in the previous two short films. It is also the first time for professional dubbers to appear in her work.

 

VISITATION

Release time: 2011

 

VISITATION originated from Suzan PITT's illusion influenced by the American fantasy novelist Lovecraft. This film marks the beginning of her new creation stage.

PINBALL

Release year: 2013

 

PINBALL is the first digital work of Suzan PITT. Through the fast montage and “Ballet Mecanique” music, she tried to convey the intense pain of the characters. Compared with her film works, the visual experience presented by this digital short film is quite different.
