‘No Leaders Please’ is an eloquently animated film based on a poem about self-discovery and reinvention by Charles Bukowski. The composition is inspired by artists Basquiat, Banksy, Haring, and A Weiwei. Filmmaker Joan Gratz skillfully uses her pioneering technique of “Claypainting”—working directly before the camera, applying bits of clay, blending colours and etching fine lines to create a seamless flow of captivating images.
