Inspired by Herbert Marcuse's One-Dimensional Man, a fast-paced animation of images critiquing industrialization.

Drux Flux

Partly figurative, partly abstract, Drux Flux is an animation film of fast-flowing images showing modern people crushed by industry. Inspired by One-Dimensional Man by the philosopher Herbert Marcuse, the filmmaker deconstructs industrial scenes and their terrifying geometry to show the inhumanity of progress. A film without words.

“Sensational montage and sound! very inspiring! thanks!”
