Description

Music by Paul Horn. Fred Wolf and Teru (Jimmy) Murakami, of Murakami & Wolf Films, are one of the hottest producers of sophisticated cartoon films today, following in the imaginative tradition of UPA, Hubley, and Pintoff. In this film -- a pungent parable on the sex war -- a bird brings a man and a girl together. The man, once he’s finished with the girl, finishes off the bird as well. “This excellent cartoon satire on the sexual mores of our modern society is open-ended and allows much leeway for discussion. It is highly recommended for discussion and use in worship services with senior highs through adults.” - Media for Christian Formation. [Source: Creative Film Society catalog, 1975]
