Vera Neubauer's The Dragon and the Fly is only a minute long, and
I've only seen it once..but it's stayed with me. That I'm from South
Wales may have something to do with that.
The Dragon and The Fly
1 min, animation, col, 35mm
The Dragon is the sulphur drenched Port Talbot in South Wales. The
steel works come to life at night, when the refinery gushes out its
fiery tongue. This breath-taking spectacle is watched by a fly slowly
dying on a windowsill.
London Filmmakers Co-op and the LVA. Commissioned for the opening of
the Lux Art Centre in Hoxton, London.
