This story of “Les Ventres” (“The Bellies”) is a thought about our epoch, an ironic and critical vision of the food-processing industry. The agribusiness uses the scientific progress to make a profit, to the detriment of the public health. The story finds a place in a world polluted and denatured by experiments, where all men eat only giant snails. In this context, a man explores a giant empty shell which becomes the gate of hell.

Allow me to introduce the work of Philippe Grammaticopoulos, a French director working with the somewhat mysterious production company Mr. Hyde in Paris. Philippe has also somehow managed to evade the Motionographer radar until now, which comes as a massive shock to me after seeing the long list of his wonderful animations. His stylistic approach and animation techniques are truly unique, but for me his off-beat, strange storytelling is what makes him stand apart from the rest.

His newest animation, Les Ventres (“The Bellies”) caught our attention when it hit our inboxes last week. Take a look at this bizarre four minute tail four minute clip from the 18 minute short about snails, glut and self-consumption.

Seeing how we missed out on all the great work the this fine director has released over the years, here’s more of his work, all of which is worth viewing. In fact, any of these could be full posts of their own.

In un mondo asettico e industrializzato, popolato da grassi personaggi tutti uguali, l’unico cibo disponibile è quello transgenico, prodotto in serie dall’industria alimentare, nelle cui fabbriche-laboratorio avviene ogni sorta di manipolazione e adulterazione genetica. Ma sarà proprio un magnate del settore a scoprire che il rischio di finire nel piatto di qualcun’altro non è così poi lontano…
