“American History” (1992) By Trey Parker “American History” (1992) By Trey Parker

From the archives, here’s the 1992 student film that Trey Parker, co-creator of “South Park”, made at the University of Colorado – a film that went on to win a student Academy Award (Silver Medal) in 1993. It was co-directed by Chris Graves.

Apparently Trey got his Japanese roommate to talk about the history of America as he knew it, which Trey then animated with crude paper cut-outs. The rest is… American History!

Lest you think The Book of Mormon, Team America or Orgazmo were Parker’s first live action efforts, check his other student film: Giant Beavers of Southern Sri Lanka
