classic!
23 February 2001 | by sarah-180See all my reviews

an amazing film of film clips, this piece is truly amazing. stunning footage presents the birth of man through metaphor and then, after twelve minutes of imagery illistrating humankind's triumphs as well as failure, conner takes the viewer back to the womb with his water motif. this piece on the whole is one of my favorite shorts, as it portrays the world circa 1960 in a way one might not expect..i also enjoy conner's use of the inaguration of queen elizabeth 2 in the midst of technological failure clips. highly enjoyable, worth the trouble of seeking it out...
