Put Your Head Among the Heads and say "Oh Cutter of the Heads"
This was a short animation on the theme of 'block' done for a local experimental film block party.
The title is a literal translation of an Arabic idiomatic saying.
The prompt was 'block' - shown as pollution/environmental blocking away of habitat, bowel obstructions ;) , and the executioner's block in the title and subtext, opression blocking justice and freedom
Today in an unrelated exploration I rediscovered another interesting example I'd read about and then forgotten: Manchurian wild rice:
"The swollen crisp white stems of Manchurian wild rice are grown as a vegetable, popular in East and Southeast Asia. The swelling occurs because of infection with the smut fungus Ustilago esculenta. The fungus prevents the plant from flowering, so the crop is propagated asexually, the infection being passed from mother plant to daughter plant."

Hello my lovely #MastoArt-ists!
Looking for other creative instances to stretch your wings? Take a look at these excellent choices:
New episode of @librelounge out with @diggity of @privacylab and @Purism! We talk about a lot of things from malware on phones using supersonic audio to track you to the Librem 5 GNU/Linux phone. https://librelounge.org/episodes/episode-15-at-libre-planet-with-sean-obrien.html
went to the IMDB page for Star Trek: Discovery to check something and saw this powerful photo of Nichelle Nichols and Sonequa Martin-Green
Kino.social is a quiet site where you can watch nice films without any distractions or tracking:
All of the movies are creative commons or public domain titles, embedded from either PeerTube or Archive.org. (There are no YouTube titles due to YT's invasive privacy policies.)
The selection is still very small as we've just started, and we're trying to avoid the "firehose" approach of archive.org.
Post a reply if you have suggestions for films to be added.
