This hilarious silent experimental film was made by Koenig, and explored abstract art as it related to alcohol-induced myopia. Filmed in the studio of animators Norman McLaren and Evelyn Lambart, it was never released, and stars National Film Board of Canada stalwarts Stanley Jackson as the painter, and director Roman Kroitor as the subject.
