The Egyptian geese marches through the ages. A centuries-long history of human settlement is told from the birds’ perspective. As the water level in their pond continues to fall, the avian inhabitants are up to their necks in problems. In the end, nothing remains as it once was. This animated short would be a cautionary tale if the events portrayed didn’t turn out to be true.
