Closed Mondays

CLOSED MONDAYS explores the relationship of art to life. As a skeptical old man wanders into a deserted art museum, the works of art displayed there shift momentarily from the world of illusion to the world of reality: an abstract painting explodes with rhythmic movement, a Rousseau jungle releases its captive images, a Dutch scrub woman talks about her plight, and a kinetic sculpture comes briefly and breathtakingly to life. A tour-de-force of clay animation. ACADEMY AWARD 1975, Best Animated Short Subject.
