Marek Skrobeck & Adam Wyrwas "Greenpeace"

Stop motion animation takes different forms. In the hands of exceptional people such as Marek Skrobeck and Adam Wyrwas it is capable of profound depth. Greenpeace is short but packs a punch. A beautifully knitted tapestry depicting a whaling hunt is gradually unpicked to an increasingly urgent electronic soundtrack. It is not just the whale that is destroyed. By butchering one of the great beasts of the ocean we diminish our world and ourselves. Greenpeace acts as guardian and conscience. A powerful campaigning ad by the award winning Polish studio Se-ma-for.
