UNKO 13:28 MIN. / 16 mm FILM / 1995 (HD VERSiON 2011) / PRODUCED IN USA. JAPAN, BRAZIL & SWITZERLAND

'UNKO' IS A SHORT FILM CATALOGUING MAN-MADE BEASTS, ORDERING HUNDREDS OF TOY AND SOUVENIR ANIMALS INTO A SEQUENCE WHICH IS BOTH ALARMING AND COMIC.

YURI A & R. MOND CREATE FILMS ABOUT OUR RELATIONSHIP TO OUR ANIMAL NATURE. THEIR SHORT FILMS ARE 'COMEDIES OF ERRORS' IN THE STYLE OF ADVERTISING FOR CHILDREN WHICH SWAY BETWEEN BEING HILARIOUS, MESMERIC, AND FRIGHTENING. THE FILMMAKERS CELEBRATE THE ANARCHIC, WORTHLESS, AND BIZARRE. 'UNKO' IS A BURLESQUE 'CATALOGUE' OF MAN-MADE ANIMALS, INTENTIONALLY LACKING IN LOGIC OR ORDER.

SHOT IN THE HIGH-KEY, HIGH-CONTRAST, SUPER-SATURATED HUES OF CHILDRENS ADVERTISING, THEIR WORKS ARE ALSO FORMS OF VISUAL NONSENSE POETRY, SWAYING BETWEEN BEING HILARIOUS, MESMERIC, AND FRIGHTENING. ALISTAIR ROBINSON
