The Absence of Eddy Table

About the project

Based on acclaimed artist Dave Cooper's work, The Absence of Eddy Table follows bug-eyed, buck-toothed Eddy, as he's dropped into an exotic world glistening with phallic flowers and libidinous danger.

'A lush, sensual dystopian nightmare about the temptations, thrills and dangers of love.' -Jury at the Guanajuato International Film Festival

'An intense mix of horror, love and comedy. It's a magical universe, where we go on a ride with a crazy and energetic roller-coaster, and it's scary and so incredible bizarre and funny.' -Jury at the Fredrikstad Animation Festival
