Title: Balablok
Director: Pojar, Bretislav
Year: 1972
Length: 07 min 27 s

Here is an animated replay of the human comedy as amusing in its perception as in the way it caricatures humanity's propensity to resort to violence rather than to reason. The whole arena of conflict is reduced to its simplest dimensions--cubes and balls representing antagonists. Why they fight and what happens after the battle is a parody of human nature. Film without words.
