Too Naughty for the Naughty Festival

Still from Derek Lang's 2004 short Macho Baby!

Tonight was the Toronto Animated Image Society (or TAIS for short) second annual Naughty Animation Night screening. One of the movies on the list of events Macho Baby! was pulled last minute. When asked, a TAIS official stated "We were not sure what the intentions were of the movie.".

The pulling the film from the playlist wouldn't have bothered me so much if I didn't have to jump through so many hoops to get them the movie on VHS to their building location of limited hours only to be then made to create a bio on myself and a blurb describing the movie twice! The movie is only 2 miunutes and 4 seconds. How much information do I have to write about this thing? Then on top of all of that they've had the movie for three weeks. Why did I have to find out it was pulled upon my arrival of the screening?

On the plus side I can now advertise that the short was pulled from the screening. It makes the short sound more intriguing.

If you haven't seen the masterpiece yet you might still have a chance by going to...
