"DIR: Dusan Vukotic SUMMARY: A man goes on a trip to the beach where everything turns out to be inflatable. WHY IT'S HERE: 'The Substitute' (aka 'Ersatz' or 'Surogat') is a Yugoslavian film featuring a little triangular man who lives in a world where everything he needs is inflatable, from sunbeds and food to human beings and scenery. It's a very odd but captivatingly absurd cartoon with a strong UPA influence and an amusing line in slapstick. After 'Moonbird' and 'Munro' won the previous two"
