CGAA One-A-Day: Achilles (1995)



I'll be featuring a number of Barry Purves' extraordinarily fluid stopmotion animations on here over the coming days, but I'm beginning with Achilles - which, in terms of homoeroticism and explorations of conflicted sexuality is provocative and bold.  Indeed, I should probably include a disclaimer here about   sexual content and 'watch something else if you're going to be offended', but hey, we're grown-ups.    Suffice to say,  Jason And The Argonauts this is not!  Achilles is also fabulous to look at, with a stripped down, theatrical aesthetic and wonderfully expressive lighting.  The puppets themselves are stunning - as you'll see.
