Evolution (Megaplex)



Video Archive

Inspired by the murals and dioramas found in natural history museums, this cinematic tapestry retells human evolution and history in a loosely-chronological horizontally-scrolling canvas. Characters from all periods of film are set within the vast panorama in an apocalyptic spectacle of constantly unfolding human conflict.
