The Imbalance of Nature

1977    Dur. 19:18    Mono

Mother Nature is depicted as the owner of a suburban beauty salon. She hatches a sinister plot to overthrow the human race by transforming her customers into giant insects. When her master plan begins to go awry her two assistants self-transform into human-size mosquitoes and ambush the local constabulary. Ultimately the grand dame is defrocked by the Big Guy In the Sky, but meanwhile her genetically-modified creatures are free to roam the Earth (was this foretelling the future?)

Produced with a production grant and a post-production grant from The Ontario Arts Council.

Broadcast on TVO’s Saturday Night At The Movies with Elwy Yost, 1978.
