PRODUCED BY: Nerdo
This animation by the Nerdo collective is an adaptation of Charles Bukowski’s famous poem, titled simply “Beer”. The film contains most of the elements important in his prose and poetry: alcohol, women, cigarettes, shady bars and neighborhoods, relationships falling apart and the jaded internal monologue of the monothematic author. While Bukowski’s works are usually quite down-to-earth, the animation allows itself to paint a psychedelic, vivid, detail-obsessed illustration of the text. This way, the authors try to take a peek into the decadent, beer-drowned mind of the brilliant writer.
