Also available

Part figurative, part abstract, Drux Flux is an animated short comprised of fast-flowing images showing modern people crushed by industry. Inspired by One-Dimensional Man, by philosopher Herbert Marcuse, the filmmaker deconstructs industrial scenes and their terrifying geometry to show the inhumanity of progress.

    Flux is dysentery. Reminiscent of the animated sequences of Moloch in "Howl." Mechanical man collapsing at the end underscores the madness of mindless production. 4/5
