Hangman

1964, Paul Julian and Les Goldman, US, 11 min.

Originally produced in 1964 and restored by the Animation Show of Shows in 2017, "Hangman" is an adaptation of a poem by Maurice Ogden about a town that allows its citizens to be executed one by one. With its universal themes of persecution, injustice and personal responsibility, this powerful film speaks to all eras and nations, and may be seen to have particular relevance in our own time.
