Storyline

In the delicate hands of an inspired and picky gourmet chef or a dedicated foodie, a ripe avocado fruit screams "Guacamole", Mexico's famous spread. The recipe is quite simple. After halving and dicing the avocado, you chop some coriander, a small onion, and a juicy red tomato. Of course, don't forget the indispensable chilli pepper and a splash of lime. ¡Buen provecho.

new type of Švankmajer
26 February 2013 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

I understand that "Fresh Guacamole" director PES has directed a number of short films. I had never heard of him until I saw "Fresh Guacamole". This 2-minute short shows noticeable influence from Czech animator Jan Švankmajer, as a pair of hands uses non-food objects to make guacamole. That's literally all that happens in the movie.

I don't see many short movies, so I don't know what the criteria are for award nominations. I thought that this one was pretty neat. As it stands, this is so far only the fifth nominee that I've seen in any category. It's worth seeing if you have two free minutes. I'm going to have to check out PES's other movies.
