Chromophobia (1972) [Short]

USA (MIFF 1972 )
Director: Raoul Servais

This animated film without commentary shows the attempt of a black-and-white army to impose its dictatorial rule on a free, happy and colourful society. A small girl nurtures one red flower that eventually takes the shape of a scarlet jester, Tyl Uylenspiegel. This remnant of colour and spirit helps the people overcome the invader. A tale of suppression, fear, and the ultimate victory of the free spirit.
