It’s not food! (sand animation film)
<2009> Sand animation film about production of “foie gras” (fat liver) in stockbreedings
No more wild ponds or grass, it’s time for metal cages, for tubes and neon lights, it’s time for mechanical chains and corn overdoses, to electric shocks and sharp knives…
Is there a time for compassion? (synopsis)
This short movie is my third film using sand, with a mix of frame by frame animation (traditional animation under camera) and live sand drawing (usually for shows and performances).
Some videos from StopGavage.com inspired me to show violence behind nice ads. A small pleasure like “foie gras” causes great sufferings for ducks and geese in stockbreedings and slaughter-houses.
