Scripted by highly acclaimed Norwegian writer (and Pushwagner collaborator) Axel Jensen, Alfred Jarry* Superfreak is a 1982 animated short, produced with Swedish animator, Per Ekholms. Part documentary of Jarry’s life in Paris, part fictional representation of characters in Jarry’s writing, this film portrays a hedonistic, surreal race from Paris across Russia and back between a train and five bike riders.


*Alfred Jarry was the founder of Pataphysics - a philosophy or pseudo-philosophy dedicated to studying what lies beyond the realm of metaphysics.
