A History of Civilization in 10 Minutes

So, maybe you could not make it to Clermont-Ferrand this year for the festival.

Well, the good news is, you can see one of the most remarkable films here – for free, on your computer.

It’s called Big Bang Big Boom. It was made by an Italian artist who calls himself Blu.  It’s a kind of History of Civilization in under ten minutes.  And people are calling this his magnum opus.

Though he has a huge following, Blu is totally unconcerned with money – he gives his films away to anyone who will watch. And each of his films has well over a million views (Muto for example has close to 9 million hits!).

Blu also retains a lot of mystique.  Like Banksy, he is someone who has retained complete anonymity, refusing to be interviewed or to attend festivals.

This is really impressive stuff.

When you can, take a break, click on this, and enjoy.

I have been living in Paris, France since 1996. I was born to Sikh parents who immigrated to the USA. I grew up outside of Kansas City, and at 18 went to Washington DC with the intention of becoming a diplomat. Five years later, I arrived in Paris and found my life purpose: to make films that bring hope, insight, and inspiration to the world. My debut feature film Callback premieres in September 2010 in New York. For more details on where you can see my films, look for me at http://www.facebook.com/#!/kartik.singh
