It's a Party! follows the disintegration of a social event in an unusual fashion. The film was shot with a stationary camera facing the hallway and living room of a small apartment. Actors continually move in and out of frame,while three sound units capture every word of deadly dialogue on those perennial party topics: art, politics, and sex. Chaos begins when the first guest arrives just as the hostess finishes washing her hair; subsequent guests crowd into any room but the living room, and a riotous conga line attempts to integrate an irate neighbour.

"Reminiscent in conception and style of the late great Jacques Tati (with a dash of Robert Altman)."
