Bydlo

 

Year: 2012
Country: CANADA
Run Time: 9 minutes

In Bydlo, which means cattle in Polish, Patrick Bouchard reinterprets the symphonic movement of the same name from Modest Petrovich Mussorgskys opus Pictures at an Exhibition. The filmmaker pushes the theme to its limit-Bydlo is inspired by the slow, cumbersome movement of an ox pulling a heavily-laden cart-and in so doing, he has succeeded in creating a powerful musical animation. In recreating the structure of the symphonic poem -crescendo, climax, decrescendo-Bouchards film evokes humanitys powerful surge forward...Humanitys quest for power, in which men, women and children are inexorably drawn to their doom. Manipulating clay figurines to shape his story, the artist designs and creates constant variations of his theme, marrying reality and fantasy.
