Homo Homini is an animated film which shows Rodin’s “The Thinker” trying to create a better world but each solution creates further problems. Through puppets and a mechanical mind, mankind’s technical ability to create incredible miracles is shown against our inability to control our intellectual powers. Laughing, dancing, murdered people, young mods and Martin Luther King, the packaged foods of the West and the emaciated bodies of the East come in a rapid succession of images.

Supplied with “Acceleration” – a quick cartoon that brings mankind from the Garden of Eden to the Space Age with the implied question has there been all that much progress after all?
