Short film by David Nerlich 1998. From deification to demonisation, the changing icon of the life-giving sun in the age of ozone depletion marks a spiritual decay that follows in the wake of the physical decay of our natural atmospheric defences.

This 3D animation follows a dreaming monologue, with transient voices and imagery floating and exchanging meaning.

And on a higher level, people start buying biofuel products made from palm oils for their vehicles. Whilst biofuel itself is indeed producing significantly less CO2 emissions, the industry continues to sacrifice hectares of forests daily, destroying the very essence of saving the planet.
