La Faim (Hunger)

Last night I watched an animated short (only eleven minutes long) by Peter Foldes called 'La Faim' (Hunger). Impressionistic rather than strictly narrative-based, it described a man's descent into gluttony. Before watching it, I noted that it was from 1974, but within a minute I was questioning that date. It was using what was very definitely computer morphing! And very effectively too. Some of the artwork and the soundtrack (still quite effective) gave that 70s ambience, but computer imagery from 1974! Amazing! On top of all that it had a wonderful creepy feel to it that put it very close to my heart, and stomach. Fabulous stuff!
