"The Rise and Fall and Rise of a Man," is the animated musical story of The
Man's rise from simple pipe cleaner being, to aimless addict, to redeemed
hipster. "Rise" was shot in 35mm stills. The animated figures, (which include
two of the characters from her earlier animation, "The Dolls",) the songs and the
music were created and performed by the filmmaker. Without narcissism, drugs,
fast cars and bad influences, how would we evolve? The Man and his friends
help find the answer to these questions, so you won't have to.
