Suzan Pitt - Animated Films
Pitt’s work is like a dream. Things exist out of proportion, shapes shift, characters emerge and then disappear. But like any dream, they also exist with a backbone of reality, and in every way celebrate the things that make life such a mixed bag of joy and sorrow. They are amazing works of art, and for any fan of animation or unique cinematic experiences, they are not to be missed. (Steven Snyder, TimeOut)

Asparagus, a major achievement of contemporary animated cinema. Its audacity, profound honesty, and uncompromising personal vision leaves you in blissful awe. It begins with an act of defecation and ends with fellatio, metaphors of spent and renewed creative impulses.
Luis Buñuel might have sparked to the sordid, gruesome charms of renowned animator Suzan Pitt’s short El Doctor. A trippy, magic-realist expedition through the mind of a pickled old Mexican doctor on his regret-filled last day on Earth.
