This short animated film presents an allegorical portrait of a society where men have lost their autonomy in the struggle to be recognized by the very society that restricts their freedom. In the film, chairs are a symbol of success; without one, every man becomes a social outcast. Highly critical of power, privilege, and the weight of social norms, the film questions our present and our future. This technically and formally innovative film is accompanied by a sombre, hypnotic soundtrack and contains no dialogue.

    A very fascinating allegory. I remember seeing this for the first time in 1979-80. It was a "Short Feature" shown between movies on HBO. Albert Camus, I believe, would have liked this. Maybe there is a bit of his influence in this.
