Description

Has to do with a consideration of one possible conceptual model for human existence: that of a primitive form of yardchair, upon which sits The Creator, impassively observing the inexorable flow of His mountains. The name EASYOUT is derived from a commercially available bolt and stud-extracting tool, whose function seemed strangely parallel to that of the film.

Awards: First Prize, Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen Film Festival, 1972; First Prize, Yale Film Festival, 1972.
