Le Songe D’ Un Garçon De Café (The Hasher’s Delirium)

Emile Cohl’s delightful animation explores the inebriated state of a drunken man, using a white plate to showcase the inner “deliriums” of his mind. The images mutate, transform, associate becoming more and more frightening for the man, until he bursts into a state of self-destruction like that of the Ouroboros.
