The Fall by Albert Camus Animated

We have the ani­ma­tion of Ancient clas­sics cov­ered. Oedi­pus star­ring veg­eta­bles? Check. An ani­ma­tion of Pla­to’s Cave Alle­go­ry nar­rat­ed by Orson Welles? Check. Anoth­er ver­sion of the Cave Alle­go­ry made with clay­ma­tion? Yes, we have that too.

Now it’s time for some­thing a lit­tle more mod­ern — Mike McCub­bins offers an ani­mat­ed adap­ta­tion of Albert Camus’ clas­sic, The Fall, pub­lished in 1957, the same year that Camus won the Nobel Prize for Lit­er­a­ture for his work that “illu­mi­nates the prob­lems of the human con­science in our times.” Give McCub­bins five min­utes and he’ll give you the visu­al essence of the philo­soph­i­cal nov­el.
