Dakota Fanning and Elle Fanning scout for followers to help topple a murdering tyrant. Ending Hunger.org has two new video clips by Polish Platige Image.
To mark World Food Day on October 16th, Polish Oscar-nominated animation studio Platige Image produces the "Hunger Personified" series as part of the Ending Hunger UN campaign
Unlike Sacha Baron Cohen's Dictator, this dictator is no joke and no fewer than 193 countries stand United in a fight against him. Because a world where hundreds of millions go hungry every day is UNACCEPTABLE, Ending Hunger as part of the Zero Hunger Challenge is a global movement that makes fighting hunger easy and realistic. "Small acts transform the world" so: stop wasting food, volunteer, support fair trade, sign the petition to end hunger (already signed by 3 420 679 people) and track your progress in making your friends sign it through Facebook.
Hunger is a Tyrant
Behind the roaring anthropomorphised Hunger monster is the Polish animation guru Damian Nenow, whose Paths of Hate animated film was shortlisted for an Oscar and won numerous awards including Best Animation and Jury Award at ComicCon 2011. If the narrator’s voice sounds familiar, that’s because it is the voice of Dakota Fanning.
Nenow, who was approached with the challenge of depicting hunger as a ruthless tyrant by the UN, put his mind to the problem,
I think the heightened level of emotion in the clip is justified, given the number of lives wasted needlessly by hunger when it’s clearly a problem that can be eradicated.

Hunger is a Monster
Hunger is "more terrifying than zombies, werewolves or vampires" because it’s real. This variation on Little Red Riding Hood representing hunger as a wolf-like crreature isthe work of Marcin Filipek. The cloth and smoke shifting cloak belongs to Elle Fanning known for her roles in Jessie Nelson's I am Sam, Sofia Coppola's Somewhere, J. J. Abrams Spielberg production Super 8.
The "Hunger Personified" series is produced by the Oscar-nominated Polish animation studio Platige Image and Visiontime.
Ending Hunger is a global campaign to combat hunger organised by the United Nation's Food and Agriculture Organisation.
