"In an abandoned house, a family of window dressers' mannequins wakes to alarm clocks, bathe, eat breakfast, and go to work - the daily routines of the middle class shoppers for whom they once modeled. Until one day another batch of mannequins of a decidedly different nature are deposited into their midst, causing a culture clash which escalates into insults and, ultimately, fisticuffs. Underneath Czech animator Barta's surrealistic technique, CLUB OF THE DISCARDED pokes fun at bourgeois values while teaching a lesson in understanding and social acceptance"--First Run Features Icarus Films. This short film was originally released in Czechoslovakia in 1989 as Klub odložených (24:27 min.)
