The art of making a complex subject easy to understand


Director Ben Lewis used animation to explain why there are over a billion people living today in desperate penury in his 2012 film Poor Us: An Animated History.

The Guardian wrote about it: "Wonderful... as if someone was reaching into your brain in every scene and briskly dusting off broken fragments of books and articles read, uniting disparate thoughts, supplementing others, planting new ones and oiling the rusting machinery at your cerebral centre that would allow you to cogitate further at your leisure."

This is the Trailer

And this is the fabulous full film
