A famous film parable in pixilation technique by Norman McLaren. Beginning with laughter as two men argue about a flower growing on the boundary between their gardens, tension develops to horror and death. An arresting film with a lesson close to home and human nature. A warning. Supplied with teacher’s guide.

This film was made in 1952, so the film and sound quality is not to modern standards. This should not diminish its impact on the viewer.
