DOOZY screening + Q&A






Where does the character end and the actor begin? This debut feature from UK artist-filmmaker Richard Squires, is a creative documentary that employs ‘Clovis’, an animated antihero (voiced by ‘Kids in the Hall’s’ Mark McKinney) as a means to explore the particular “voice” casting of cartoon villains in the late 1960s.

Through the lens of one of Hollywood’s hidden queer histories, this experimental documentary offers a contemplation on the psycho-social relationship between villainy and hysterical male laughter; the use of voice as a signifier of ‘otherness’ and the frequently uneasy symbiosis of character and actor.

The screening will include a discussion led by film contributor Professor Paul Wells, Director of the Animation Academy at Loughborough University.
