“Malaria” – Like nothing I’ve seen

I saw this one someone else’s blog recently – I’m sorry I can’t remember who.  But Malaria, by Edson Oda, is a short film that truly does tell it’s story in a way that I’ve never seen before.  As someone interested in both film and comics, it was fascinating to see the way this piece blend the two forms.  Ultimately, it is a movie (it takes the rate at which you experience the story out of your control, which I think would be a defining quality of a comic), but it employs graphic novel elements in a unique and fun way.  (Since I first watched it, I’ve discovered that Oda has other films as well, including at least one other that is made in a similar style).

Enjoy!
