A minimalist allegory about life itself by Iring Freytag and Viktor Stickel which:
…tells the story of a child who has to leave its hut in order to find firewood in the cold world. The search becomes a life task.
A graduation film by students AV-RON Maya, COMINOTTI Mylène, COUDERT Marion, DANO Sixtine of GOBELINS. A metaphor for climate change, to wit:

A curiously atmospheric short by Taylor Beldy, to wit:
…a collage of images, metaphors, and sound. Events and instances happen throughout a day.
Designer and animator Chris Finn says of his metaphorical cavalcade

Part of a short interview, filmed in 2010 wherein the German director Werner Herzog (who took part in an ‘ask me anything’ session last month on Reddit) talks about his strong dislike of chickens. In the book Herzog on Herzog (2003) he described them thus:
Look into the eyes of a chicken and you will see real stupidity. It is a kind of bottomless stupidity, a fiendish stupidity. They are the most horrifying, cannibalistic and nightmarish creatures in the world.
It’d make you think though. Unless you were a chicken. In which case it wouldn’t at all.
