Hello My Name is Anna Kavan

webpage, 2012

HELLO MY NAME IS ANNA KAVAN is a 15 minute 3-D animated film. It is based on the writings of british novelist Anna Kavan. Kavan herself becomes a character in the piece as she tells a story about her integration into B.F. Skinner's nightmare Utopia, Walden Two. As she narrates a tale of isolation and imprisonment (recurring themes in Kavan's fiction), memories from her life before her entrance into the community begin to surface, including a memory of a sadistic chauffeur which refers to another recurring theme in Kavan's fiction; cars and speed.
