One Of The Best Short Films EVER!!!

By Ted Hope

Frank Film, Frank MOURIS, 1973 by shortanimatedworld

I can’t believe I have lived so long without having encountered this film before. It won an Oscar in 1973 for Best Animated Short. Even with the commercial interruption and poor resolution it made my list of Best Shorts ever. What’s on your list?

    Very interesting, thanks for sharing it!!!  ”Meshes of the Afternoon” by Maya Deren was an early influence, and I LOVED “Gowanus Brooklyn” years before seeing “Half Nelson”.

    Technically an amazing short. That must have taken years to make. Thanks for sharing with us!

    Here's my favorite short in recent memory which is making the rounds on the festival circut — THE PALACE by Anthony Maras - http://www.facebook.com/video/

    Pretty mind-expanding. My favorite experimental short is DEBBI by Mikael Sodersten. I may be biased, but the way it comments on the uses and misuses of power is really disturbing: http://www.wildernessfilms.us/

    Very good and interesting movie. No doubt it won an Oscar as it looks like it surely deserves one. Thank you for sharing this post with us!
