Who runs this planet, anyway? An animated car-culture critique from the '60s

Submitted by Tyee Staff, 26 Jul 2012

 

From the National Film Board website: "This animated short proposes what many earthlings have long feared – that the automobile has inherited the planet. When life on Earth is portrayed as one long, unending conga-line of cars, a crew of extra-terrestrial visitors understandably assume they are the dominant race. While humans, on the other hand, are merely parasites. An Oscar nominee, this film serves as an entertaining case study."
