Dinner for Few / Nassos Vakalis

“During dinner the system works like a well-oiled machine. It solely feeds the select few who eventually, foolishly consume all the resources while the rest survive on scraps from the table. Inevitably, when the supply is depleted, the struggle for what remains leads to catastrophic change. Sadly, the offspring of this profound transition turn out not to be a sign of hope, but the spitting image of the parents. “

Dinner for Few, a ten minute CG-animated film on the cyclical nature of human affairs throughout history, produced and directed by Greek animation artist Nassos Vakalis.

Dinner for Few screened at over 250 international film festivals and won 78 awards.

The original music is by Greek film composer Kostas Christides and performed by the Bratislava Symphony Orchestra.

Sugar and junk food monsters by photographer James Ostrer. Supportingly the photographer wants to comment on obesity and our obsession with sugar stating (via the press release) “This adornment becomes a mask of what we eat which then becomes entwined with a hyper-pop sensibility and an obsequious inquiry into the great volumes of sugar that flow through our bodies.”

Its hard to be convinced though, as his models are thin (especially the girls) and so nicely adorned that you want to lick them! ( not so sure for the burger guy..)
