Leisure is a wonderful Australian animated short that won the Oscar
This most deservedly Oscar-winning animated short from Australia in 1976 starts with a line drawing on white background of a man relaxing by him self. Then we see him working various jobs to achieve his leisure time. Then we go through a history of mixing work and leisure through photographs, paintings, illustrations, and other animated depictions in a collage of images all accompanied by a narrator and some flute and other music from the '70s. A very unique short that deserved its recognition, Leisure seems a wonderful '70s tribute to more innovative art forms of that adventurous decade. If you have Google Video and love animation, I definitely suggest you seek it out there.
