Petty party politics gets animated - literally - in this amateur cartoon with a message.

Animation & Artists Moving Image 1964 3 mins


If you've got something to say, animation is a great medium to get your point across, even for an amateur. Derek Phillips made over 40 films in under a decade, taking on religion, politics, the environment and the art world. Constantly experimenting with technique, in this film he recreates binary politics through a red and blue design, with the characters reduced to simple mouthpieces and empty gestures - and with a typically pessimistic conclusion.
