Adam

Greece, 1986 (MIFF 1987)

Director: Jordan Ananiadis

After nuclear destruction all appears lost... but a new species of man emerges. Adam is technically accomplished, having been made up of over 15,000 individual drawings on plain paper.

Zooms and dissolves were achieved through drawings in the tradition of primitive animation.
