Joe Bob Briggs calls this award-winning short "the mother of all art films." An angst-filled temporary worker plunges into a symbolic labyrinth of mythological mayhem. In black and white and Esperanto with subtitles in English this avante gardesque film explores the existential dilemma as it lampoons the corporate culture of San Francisco's financial district. Ne Plu Pikniko won Best Satire Short at the NYIIFV Festival 2008 and is on to Cannes 2009. It also won second prize at The San Francisco Poetry Film Festival where it was called "redolent of Euripides." Also a second prize winner at the Rutgers Mixed Media Festival, reviewers noted it was "like Woody Allen interpreting Sartre" and "the film that got the greatest audience response."
