The Great Walled City of Xan

USA, 1969 (MIFF 1971, Programme B)

Director: Hal Barwood

This is an animated glimpse of the greatest city that ever was, with a hint of its magic power and a record of its downfall. The dilemma expressed is not so much one of religious faith, but in the administration of religious duties.
