Paradise Lost picked as one of “8 Key 60-Second Films That Pack a Punch”
Vince Hemingson, “Paradise Lost”
The joke at the center of this stop-motion comedy is so perfectly simple it’s a wonder no one thought of it before. A lush miniature forest of grass and trees on a female body is gruffly mowed away and chopped down by little bulldozers and excavators, their growling motors leaving only dirt in their wake. This playful visual joke is so well executed that it elevates its medium. Hemingson is all for bush and all for the earth, and we’re all for him. Premieres 8/16.
