A stick man moves around and finds many morphing objects, such as a wine bottle that turns into a flower. There are also some live action sequences, where the animator’s hands appear.

Reason of Choice

Considered by film historians the first animated film of the cinema history, we chose this title among the others we showed to children aged 2-3, in order to put them in contact with the early years of animation: we built with children a camera obscura and decided to show them some of the first animated films ever made. Black and white, silent film, that anyway could easily be appreciated by kids, as it portraits a continuous transformation: from a single white line on a black screen, through animation we could potentially create everything.
