Chromophobia (1965)


Synopsis:

The grey legions invade the world of colour to establish their colourless dominance. Resistance appears in the shape of a scarlet jester, who restores the reign of colour using his chromatic trickery.

“Chromophobia was another step in my evolution towards a simplified, almost schematic graphic design, together with dynamic editing.”
