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.

'FRESH GUACAMOLE': Three Stars (Out of Five)

This 2 minute 2012 animated short film was nominated for a 2013 Academy Award. It was written and directed by PES and is about making guacamole from different objects around the house (that aren't edible), including dice and poker chips to name a few. PES also directed the 2008 critically acclaimed stop-motion short film 'WESTERN SPAGHETTI', about making spaghetti from different objects. Somewhat amusing and colorful but I don't know if it's Oscar worthy. As far as the animation goes I guess possibly so but there's no story here, it's just an animated cooking video with different objects.
