I Want Some Insecticide

1986, 3:53 min, b&w and color, sound

I Want Some Insecticide is a keyed-up vision of science fiction run amok, a chilling and dystopian view of a technological and militaristic future. Bizarre insect-like puppets, constructed from coffee cans, plastic cones and other throw-aways, dance in bold chroma-key over black-and-white archival footage of a barren and frozen Arctic wasteland, speaking found-sound phrases from an English language instruction tape. In this cautionary tale, Miller cynically implies the "fiction of science."

Produced/Directed/Edited by Branda Miller. Music/Story: Fredrik Nilsen. Puppets: Rick Potts. On-Line Editor: Rick Feist.
