Hunger

I’m very much looking forward to seeing the new film by Steve McQueen (no, this Steve McQueen) about hunger-striking IRA prisoners, entitled Hunger. I’ll write about that when I’ve seen it, but in the meantime, here’s another film, La Faim – ‘hunger’ in French – that remixes ideas of hunger, gluttony, desire and fear. It’s an entirely captivating eleven minutes long, and one of first 1970s stabs at computer animation.



Do watch it in full screen mode if you can – I’ve had to crop it to get it into this blog. Hat tip to Kathy, and the National Film Board of Canada.
