Introduction
A large, clear window; a child on a tricycle; and an empty room shaped like small boxes... The characters appear and disappear through the doors following the minute directions of the director, creating a pattern that resembles the various stages of one's life, finally returning to the origin...An allegory of our lives, the innovative aesthetics of Zbigniew RYBCZYNSKI expand the territory of animation into infinity with the transformation and re-composition of live action. 1987 Cannes Advertising Film Festival - Silver Lion Award 1987 Rio International Film Festival - Special Festival Award
