Simon Cartwright’s puppet animation is based on an idea that would make Charlie Kaufman excited. During a primal scream therapy, the protagonist who is turning and twisting from all his bottled up desires finally lets out a small, naked and hairy caveman – a miniature version of himself lacking any inhibitions. Together, they go into the city to spread chaos and destruction, give themselves over to their wildest instincts and fulfill all of their whims, even the most disgusting ones. “Manoman” is a loud, testosterone-powered, uncompromising journey to the heart of masculinity, during which burning cars is nothing out of the ordinary.
Animator, director, storyboard artist, graduate from the National Film & Television School in London. Specializes in puppet, stop-motion and hand-drawn animation. His film “Manoman” was screened at various festivals (Telluride, Edinburgh, BFI London Film Festival) and was nominated for the BAFTA award.
