Title
Automania 2000
Description
A satiric tour de force on technological overkill. This prophetic and humorous film concerns the state of the world at the millenium. Uncannily accurate in its prediction, the film shows the results of technology gone mad. In the race to produce bigger and better cars we see how humanity adapts to life in a grid-locked world. One of the studios finest films, Automania 2000 was a prize winner all round the world, including a Hollywood Oscar nomination and a British Academy award. Created by the Halas and Batchelor animation studio in 1963.
