Hunger is a Monster
The studio Platige Image has created two short thirty second videos for the United Nations‘ Zero Hunger Challenge campaign, to raise awareness of hunger and those suffering from it. The campaign’s tagline is “Hunger can be eliminated in our lifetimes.” The two videos created for the campaign are “Hunger is a Monster” and “Hunger is a Tyrant”.
“Hunger is a Tyrant” depicts a dystopian scene of people in a parched and broken landscape, ruled by an evil dictator. The video is narrated by Dakota Fanning.
“Hunger is a Monster” features a scene reminiscent of Little Red Riding Hood, and has an impressive spread of production images. The video is narrated by Elle Fanning.
About “Hunger is a Monster,” Platige Image writes, “It’s a part of the “Hunger Personified” series which characterizes hunger as animate threats such as a tyrant or a monster and uses hyperbole to highlight the dangers of being apathetic to hunger and accepting it as a necessary evil.”
In the video, “Hunger is a Monster,” a woman in a red hood walks alone in a dark and snowy forest with white trees. A wolf stalks her. The red hood morphs from fabric into curls of smoke, while the wolf alternates between looking like an animal and appearing to be an animated skeleton or corpse. As the narrator urges the viewer to “Blow the whistle on hunger,” the wolf leaps on the woman, who vanishes, leaving the blood red cape behind her for the wolf to attack.
The videos end with the call to “Join the movement,” and the url for EndingHunger.org. On the Ending Hunger website, an inspirational quote by Albert Einstein accompanies an image of a starving youth: “The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.”
