How do you turn comic book panels into a movie without animation? Edson Oda's ingenious short film Malaria uses comic panels on individual sheets of paper, placing and moving and manipulating them in a way that manages to be far more cinematic than motion comics ever are. It enhances the tension of this quiet Western fantasy of a man hired to kill Death himself, until all erupts in an intriguing spin on comic book symbols of violence.
