1997, 00:30 minutes, colour/B&W


Stop frame animation with video, painstakingly shot using small, thin, sticks of lead. Rows of lead facing one another on a white plastic surface, begin charging at one another and then like cattle become congested as they attempt to pass one another.

Relentlessly they perform a militant routine for the viewer's pleasure. The animation is accompanied by a shrieking distorted sound track of a Nazi rally.
