Scenes with Beans

Babfilm, Gems of the Hungarian animation, 1975 (12’); Screening: 09.08, 11.30, Toldi Cinema, Nagyterem

This fascinating stop motion film is a comic social allegory, which was made using 3 000 beans. It presents a vision of the inhabitants of this world from the perspective of an extra-terrestrial, who witnesses the brutal crushing of a workers’ strike. The film is one of Ottó Foky’s many object animations, whose scripts were all written by József Nepp.
