Storyline

A strange object flies through the sky at night, while most of the city is asleep. The leopard looks up just as it has a deer in its clutches. The leopard and the deer run away in fear. The owl looks up just as it has a rat in its clutches. The owl and the rat run away in fear. Most of the city is asleep. But the wise men are awake, and they see the object. The leaders are awake, and they see the object, too. In this animated parable of a nuclear holocaust, the object in the sky proves to be the last thing they see. Written by J. Spurlin

It seemed very small at first . . . . . . .
24 July 2011 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

Crudely animated, and with some simple, childish and repetitive wording over the imagery, A Short Vision turns into something very effective by the end thanks to these aspects and the imagery that becomes gradually more powerful and impressive.

Different creatures and men look up at an object in the sky while others sleep on. The object is about to affect everyone, awake or not.

Written and directed and designed and produced by Joan and Peter Foldes, A Short Vision is well worth seeing. It represents a warning put forward in such a simplistic fashion, without histrionics, that everyone can think about what is shown and give it some thought.

Impressive stuff.
