The Stork: It’s a Bird of War!!

The Stork: It’s a Bird of War

The Stork is one of Nina Paley’s earlier animated films. The Stork starts out as a pleasant children’s cartoon, but before long it turns into something more sardonic and sinister, closer to Apocalypse Now. It’s a decidedly provocative, but at the same time very funny look at the perils of population explosion.

When Paley first began work on this short film, she predicted that it would provoke lots of anger, “be extremely unpopular, and possibly end my animation career.” Nevertheless, The Stork went on to play at The Sundance Festival and numerous other festivals, winning awards all along the way.
