Throw out the rules of traditional filmmaking! Inspired animation architects build hovering fourth-dimensional forms. Morphing imaginations teeter between the psychedelic and psychotic. Spiritual insights beyond the grasp of words coalesce into truly original aesthetic experience. Dizzying but never dull — do you dare touch the exploding mind?

Here's some of what you'll see: Techno-tribal disco-Aztec bio-machines metamorphose from space eggs into revolving constructions. A micro-documentary uses comical talking T-shirts to illuminate the peculiar life of proto-Surrealist Alfred Jarry. A horse is a costume is a robbery is a spectator sport and 1 2 3 4 5. Juxtaposing freak-out aesthetics with historical journal entries, a mixed-race boxing match reveals the deep psychology of a racist preacher's nightmares. Wild and beautiful dancing doodles caper in musical delight.
