Description

...An impressionistic study in color of the life of the rides in a carnival during a 24 hour period, as they blaze in pagan glory during the night, then restlessly doze during the day, awaiting the trill of the new night's activity. The film is also a visual interpretation of 'The Concerto For Percussion and Orchestra,' by Darius Milhaud, which is used as an accompanying music background to the visual images.
