Description

An award winning animation film using modeling clay that has been acclaimed as the best film of its kind since CLAY: ORIGIN OF THE SPECIES. It shows a little clay blob moving across the landscape to the music of Ravel's 'Bolero'. As it moves, it creates, one by one, the classic architectural structures of each civilization in history, until it creates a modern skyscraper city. Then destruction comes in the form of an atomic war; but after a pause the blob emerges from the wreckage and starts all over again.
