Stilt Dancers

"They're just humble workers from China. But come festival time, they paint their faces, strap on wooden stilts as tall as stop signs, and put on an act that's a combination political rally, commedia dell'arte, and steeplechase. It's a weird and astonishing spectacle, and filmmakers Carma Hinton and Richard Gordon show it off beautifully in this whimsical short."

The Boston Phoenix, April 6, 1982
