Picture in Your Mind

USA, 1949 (MIFF 1953, International Understanding)

Director: Philip Stapp

Deals with the complex problem of man's prejudices. A barren landscape changes to a flowering land, then withers. The question: "Is the future to be bright or dark? Is this to be a world of robot minds?" The future depends on the individual he is asked to re-examine his picture of the other man.
