He Was Once

by Mary Hestand

| (1989)

Producer: Christine Vachon

Synopsis: Director Mary Hestand was inspired by Art Clokey’s iconic Claymation characters of Davey and Goliath for her 1989 avant-garde short film, He Was Once.

With “pseudo-animation,” lacquered hair, oversized ear, and painted backgrounds, this visually rich short also includes a cameo from a young Todd Haynes, himself.
