CGiii Comment

Just about as mad as it can possibly get!

A musical short is a difficult genre...fair play, they gave it a stab...some of it works, some of it doesn't.

But...it delivers a clear and positive message and it is a whole lot of mad, madcap fun!

The(ir) Blurb...

EAT THE RAINBOW is a musical fable about an odd yet kind man named Bayani who moves into a conservative suburban neighborhood and disrupts the otherwise comfortable homogeny. He doesn't look or act like anyone else which causes fear and panic and eventually a demand for him to leave the neighborhood. Cousin Wonderlette befriends Bayani and together they take on the opposition led by manipulative and unscrupulous realtor Lobelia Gerber.
