Ben Hayeem

Papillote (1964) 16mm, black and white, 10.5 min

Genre: Experimental

Every morning a man is born out of a paper bag. He distributes money to the financial world of the Stock Exchange in Wall Street, and disappears into his paper bag again at night. This is the basis for PAPILLOTE, a bizarre fantasy set in some unlikely corners of New York. --B. H. Third Ann Arbor Film Festival: "The satirical and marvelous surprise of the festival was Benjamin Hayeem's PAPILLOTE." --Gregory J. Markopoulos "Des trois recits, c'est PAPILLOTE de Benjamin Hayeem (U. S. A.) qui se detache du peloton. Ce comique pur, dans la tradition surannee a laquelle les "jeune" decidement reviennent comme a une source ou ils boiront le genie." --la nouvelle republique
