Film
Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

The scene is a desolate landscape which reveals no signs of life. Out of the stillness emerge two opposing factions, both wanting possession of a shiny object. This allegorical film suggests a decaying world created by greed, but the ultimate interpretation rests with the viewer.
