This has got to be one of the finest/strangest animated short films out there. It's about a racist barber in 1930s New York who removes his balding, bigoted head out of his ass after a magic trumpet arrives at his shop and makes him happy. Yup, that old chestnut.

For a second year, street art collective Mentalgassi are helping to highlight some of the year’s most prominent human rights abuse cases playing out around the world. The 6 individuals highlighted include Fatima Hussein Badi, who faces the death penalty in Yemen after an unfair trial, Jabbar Savalan, who is in prison in Azerbaijan for his peaceful anti-government activism (including comments he made on Facebook), and Natalia Estemirova, a Russian human rights activist whose murder has not been brought to justice. Mentalgassi transform large portaits of each individual into segmented strips that are applied to the slats of fences. At first the images aren’t readily visible and only come into focus suddenly from extreme angles, reinforcing the campaign’s theme, ‘making the invisible visible.'

Oh and here's a rad remix of one of her songs, Comme Des Enfants:
