8:30pm – Saturday, July 7 on ABC2
Fielding Mellish is a tester of Rube Goldbergesque devices who suddenly finds himself caught up in an exciting world of revolutionary politics in South America.
There is ‘something missing’ in Fielding’s everyday life, though he can’t quite figure out what it is. He meets and falls for Nancy, an activist prominent in liberal causes. Through a hilariously bizarre set of circumstances, Fielding finds himself about to join the revolution in San Marcos, a little banana republic south of the border.
Directed by Woody Allen, Bananas stars Woody Allen and Louise Lasser.
