2013 VIDEO: Visual Poetry: the Four Great Fools

Visual Poetry:  the Four Great Fools
-

   
-
Watch on YouTube
"A mother imagines that her unborn child is afraid to enter a society governed by four major human errors, under which every other evil, big and little, falls. The woman addresses them and shows how she survived... and how together she and her child will reject the Four Great Fools. Because life is too precious to be afraid to live it."
-
I don't know how to characterize this work.  The focus is on an idea.  The rest is background.  Visual poetry is the best term I can think of.  Another example of what happens when video and visual creation fall within reach of lots of talented people.
