“During dinner the system works like a well-oiled machine. It solely feeds the select few who eventually, foolishly consume all the resources while the rest survive on scraps from the table. Inevitably, when the supply is depleted, the struggle for what remains leads to catastrophic change. Sadly, the offspring of this profound transition turn out not to be a sign of hope, but the spitting image of the parents. “
Dinner for Few, a ten minute CG-animated film on the cyclical nature of human affairs throughout history, produced and directed by Greek animation artist Nassos Vakalis.
Dinner for Few screened at over 250 international film festivals and won 78 awards.
