Anyone for Asparagus?

As part of the Flatpack festival, the Midlands Arts Centre is screening a selection of Suzan Pitt's short animations on Sunday March 18th.  Pitt's work was unknown to me, but the description sounded tantilising.  I just watched her landmark piece 'Asparagus', and it's astonishing: a perfect crystallisation of dream-space and dream-logic.  Creepy and exhilerating, it's well worth a look, though certain moments are a little, ahem, adult (though warped and refracted in the hazy mirror that is the dreaming imagination) so be warned.
