Plastique Morte

Director's Statement:

Plastique Morte began when I spied a lone, trashed lawn chair on the side of a slow-moving freeway. He looked so forlorn, that I wondered how he had gotten there, and why no one stopped to pick him up, to put him in his final resting place. From there, the story unraveled in my head, coming together as a crime-mystery spoof, in which chairs were the focus. Chairs of all shapes, sizes and colors come together to create a mystery that only one chair can solve.
