Verdenshistorien 1. del: En plads på jorden

26 min.DK/Short fictionChildren's films, Animation

The world was created four and and a half billion years ago. It is barren, but life itself arises from the water and the sunshine and some creatures leave the water. On earth many kinds of animals are created and the huge dinosaurs rule until a gigantic meteor changes the conditions on earth and the huge animals die out. The mammals take over, and one day an ape lengthens his arm with a club: Man is made. And man builds houses, hunts animals and cultivates land. But he also catches other human beings, sacrifices animals and people to the gods, invents war, income tax, politicians and the professional army and the written language, democracy and philosophy. One day the Roman emperor Augustus wants to take a census. But Joseph is worried. He is not the father of the child. Who is?
Our wonderful world history is told with imagination and catching humour.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste. Se listen over prioriterede festivaler.
