Benjamin Scheuer - Cookie-tin Banjo

'Cookie-tin Banjo' is taken from Benjamin Scheuer's live show and one-man musical performance called 'The Lion'.

'The Lion' is an autobiographical coming-of-age story, centered around the conflicted relationship he had with his late father. Scheuer's musical narrative enables him to retrospectively view his father as a complete man with both wonderful qualities and deep flaws, rather than the hagiographic figure that was presented to him as a child.

'Cookie-tin Banjo', animated by Carlos de Faria, Peter Dodd, Peter Baynton at Radish Pictures, is gorgeously illustrated like a children's picture book, as Benjamin fondly recalls the toy banjo made for him by his father and the musical ambitions it inspired.

Utterly charming!
