Peter Földes: a Boy with a Bright Future

Watch the trailer

N.F.B. - "Hunger - la Faim"

Originally from Hungary, English then French by adoption, Peter Földes (1924- 1977) was an artist, cartoonist, filmmaker, graphic designer and videographer. Veering towards Pop Art, he nevertheless refused to lock himself into one style. At the end of the sixties, he widened his research into computer assisted imagery, and these playful and emotional works were the first to sacrifice nothing to the demands of meaning. A programme to (re)-discover an inspired precursor.
