  1. La faim by Peter Foldès, National Film Board of Canada

    Famine as a theme seems like a sudden change of pace from the other horsemen. While they are unified in inflicting suffering, Conquest, War, and Death are sometimes reinterpreted as possible means of (spiritual) righteousness. In this figure, inequality and austerity are represented in the attribute of the scales, where the capacity to suffer is mainly the lot of those that can not afford to be insulated from it.

    Peter Foldès - “La Faim” (Hunger)

    In this animated short, director Peter Foldès depicts one man’s descent into greed and gluttony. Rapidly dissolving and ever-evolving images create a contrast between abundance and want. One of the first films to use computer animation, this satire serves as a cautionary tale against self-indulgence in a world still plagued by hunger and poverty.

  4. Norman McLaren - “Blinkity Blank”

    This experimental short film by Norman McLaren is a playful exercise in intermittent animation and spasmodic imagery. Playing with the laws relating to persistence of vision and after-image on the retina of the eye, McLaren engraves pictures on blank film creating vivid, percussive effects.
