Attic, The

Date produced: 1968

Filmmaker(s):

Don Tennant

Description:

"The Attic, done in black-and-white, ends with a twist that really gets one guessing. Don Tennant's back yard becomes an authentic battleground and excellent use of sound makes this film seem like it has a cast of thousands until you realize there are only three characters in the story. One of them is you . . . wandering. Here again we can't tell you too much without spoiling it for you, except to say that it's 5 1/2 minutes with an ex-G.I. in "the attic"" PSA Journal, Oct. 1968, 49.
