Attention

Poland, 1959 (MIFF 1960, Programme 4)

Director: S. Janik

We see the outlines of figures from the Stone Age, carved on rocks. These are battle scenes. The figures begin to move and the movement turns into a fierce battle...

This is an experimental film picturing the develop­ment of weapons of total destruction, beginning with the prehistoric age and coming down to the era of the A-bomb.
