ABCDoublespeak is a reminder of the evil and grotesque nature of the words used to describe violence in our world. This new dictionary does not have a filter and unveils the reality behind these words, which are masked by a positive image within the public media. Synchronized to the popular song ‘the ABCs’, which children use to learn their alphabet, ABCDoublespeak reads between the lines and shows how innocents and facts can be distorted by warfare and armed conflict. Using traditional animation, pixilation and motion graphics, this video creates a new song, ‘Our Modern Times ABC,’ that children from war-ravaged communities sing too many times and know all too well.
