This animated film features hand-drawn visualizations accompanied by music and other sound effects, but without any speech sounds. These animated drawings dynamically envision pre-Neolithic tools, weapons—such as big game spears—and other artifacts, as well as pre-Neolithic practices, including big game hunting and its hazards, leading to a dramatic portrayal of a hunter’s violent death in a confrontation with his prey and the ensuing burial practices. Add to this the centuries-later rediscovery and display of the skeletal remains of our human ancestors, and of their artifacts, in modern museums.
