Synopsis

Machine with Wishbone by Randall Okita is a gorgeous, minimalist treat for the eyes and ears. Eschewing language or narrative, the film is labelled experimental, but do not let that turn you off. It is a tightly constructed piece that keeps the viewer captivated from start to finish.

– John Endo Greenaway, Ricepaper Magazine

Machine with Wishbone is an entirely live action movie shot without special effects, featuring the work of internationally celebrated artist Arthur Ganson. Using innovative camera choreography, photo sculpture, and kinetic sculpture, Machine with Wishbone tells the tale of a stoic mechanical wishbone on its journey through a world of snoring beds, paper birds, and places you have to see to believe.
