The short film "Hunger" by Peter Foldès was made over 40 years ago using computers. The design is fresh. It looks like it could have been made today.
Animated film satire of self-indulgence in a hungry world. Rapidly dissolving, reshaping images, made with the aid of a computer, create a stark contrast between abundance and want. A man eats, at first sparingly, but his appetite grows to gluttony, greed, and gratification of every desire. The nightmare that finally haunts him is the one that hangs over our disparate world.
I love the soundtrack, too.
Hunger, from the National Film Board of Canada (Via Dangerous Minds)
