Picassoesque was based on a poem by Julia Darling which I read after seeing The Poetry Virgins perform some of their poems live in Newcastle. It is about wide ankles and the sense of liberation one can feel when they have been embraced! In their wide and beautiful Curves!….Northern Arts funded the film and I made it in a tiny studio down the road from the Mayfair. The lovely Sheila Graber was very helpful and encouraging at this time. Nicola Lumley did amazing sounds for the film and recorded Kathryn Williams doing the voice….a few takes were needed to cope with fits of giggles…

Directed and Animated by Sally Arthur. 1997.
