Serj Tankian has released the video for “Uneducated Democracy” from his recently-released album, Harakiri. The four-minute clip, which you can see on AltPress.com, shows how society is affected by facism. It features a variety of scenes using Claymation figures and animation mixed with footage of Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini and Fidel Castro.
The video was created by students enrolled in The Tumo Center For Creative Technologies, a non-profit organization and technology school in Armenia, which Tankian supports and is on the board of advisors.
