Purloiner El Magnifico


Purloiner El Magnifico

An oddball 16mm chase film.


Purloiner El Magnifico was shot as live-action but takes on the pace and persona of the classic, nonsensical animation of the 1950’s and 60’s. Through a tour de force of outlandish slapstick embellishments, it leads us in a chase from one man’s stolen lunch through a world of color and black and white, subways and rooftops, comic aggression and inquisitive surprise.
