The Idea


Directed by Berthold Bartosch
France, 1932
Short, Animation, Silent


Based on Frans Mesareel’s famed woodcuts, this animated film classic was the first trick film with a radical film: a revolutionary idea (in the shape of a nude woman) is conceived by the artist, condemned by the world, the rich, and the church, but lives on, forever stirring men to revolt.
