This first stop-motion animated short film by award winning American sculptor John Frame involves thirty-five highly articulated characters that inhabit a world unidentifiable by place or time. LA Times art critic David Pagel writes of Three Fragments of a Lost Tale, "Frame's figures throw open the doors of a world unlike any that has ever existed, yet strangely familiar.
Contemporary viewers of his art find themselves in a position similar to that of these characters: awed, even daunted, by the strange, densely detailed world before us-which is nothing like the everyday reality we have left behind."
