Indie Film Watch - "Yellow Cake"

If you've been following news out of Iran, then you can probably guess that the title of this video "Yellow Cake" might have something to do with enriching uranium and nuclear proliferation. This animated short was described to me as Snow White meets The Battle of Algiers. There's definitely a lot of social commentary to pick up on the surface, but I would highly recommend a second or third viewing, because you'll catch something new each time. The piece was done by a Nickelodeon animator named Nick Cross, and has a running time of about 9 minutes. So here it is, Yellow Cake by Nick Cross.
