The Saga of Biorn

A friend pointed me to the Animation Workshop and their student final projects this year. They are all brilliant in their own way but a couple stood out as things we should see here.

The Saga of Biorn is the first. It has a simple and humorous commentary about the multiplicity of religions.


The next that I thought fit in here was The Backwater Gospel. It is a very effective discussion of the interaction between faith, fear, and isolationism.


Watch, enjoy, share.

  1. I love the Saga of Biorn. The (as a friend called them) projectile nuns and the musak at the end crack me up.

    For some reason, on the second one, I feel like I would have liked it much more if it had been a graphic novel rather than a film. Strange.
