The Mallet

Malj (1977)
Director: Aleksandar Ilić
Runtime: 10 min

Since black chicks are slower in the process of fattening, the factory’s genetic department eliminates them at the start, and if any manage to hatch and reach the conveyor belt where chickens are selected, it ends up in the dumpster – under the mallet, along with other rejected chickens. An excellent allegory of discrimination based on arbitrarily chosen biological characteristics.
