Bydlo (Trailer)

Watch the film

An allegory of mankind heading for disaster, this animated short is a tragic vision inspired by the 4th movement of Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition. Drawing on the composer’s brilliant ability to evoke work and labour in his music, animator Patrick Bouchard brings earth to life through animated clay sculptures, creating a tactile nightmare in which man is his own slave driver.

    “This is an apt metaphor for the state of humanity guided by the amoral concept of progress, like that described in Surviving Progress(2011).” — Abon, 6 Jun 2014
