Let! Them! Fight! Or maybe don’t let them fight? Do we really need to keep fighting over some shiny rocks? Forever and ever? I guess so. This fantastic animated short film called A Brief Disagreement is made by the very talented animation filmmaker Steve Cutts. It’s a 3-minute animated short described as “a visual journey into mankind’s favourite pastime throughout the ages.” Meaning – humanity’s love of fighting each other, beating each other up, conquering each other, all so they can have more land/things/money/property than the other. It’s so accurate and so realistic it’s painful. But I love the animation in this, all the grunting and punching is hilarious with these two big guys duking it out. So many great battles throughout history covered in barely 120 seconds! Incredible work from Steve. Will we ever stop all the fighting? Probably not…
