Text:
In this fast moving and overblown scratch-video the true account of the Story of Mankind is told in the space of 505 seconds. In a barrage of pictures, as if from a Stalin organ, real "scissor and glue" collages are mixed with scratch-video collages of TV commercials, old newsreels, trick and computer animation: cut precisely to the pulse of the original musical score, the screen explodes in an absolutely insane and incoherent depiction of the devolution of Mankind
