Entertaining. Funny. Provocative. Through a rich blend of fantasy and reality, this animation film offers a bold perspective on an as yet unresolved problem--the nature of human identity. When a scientist creates a machine that can make copies of physical objects including humans, a number of ethical questions arise. Is the technique moral? What of its safety? Oscar-winning filmmaker John Weldon (who also wrote the catchy banjo tune that punctuates the story's changing moods) uses paper and coloured pencils to create this intriguing concoction which will entrance viewers with its spellbinding story and witty details.

1990, 10 min 05 s
