Court métrage d'animation réalisé par Bretislav Pojar dont le nom est apparu au palmarès des plus grands festivals du monde. Balablok met en scène des cubes qui se rendent compte qu'il existe des êtres de même nature qu'eux mais différents d'aspect, les Ronds. S'ensuivront l'étonnement, la moquerie et la bagarre jusqu'à ce qu'ils deviennent tous des Hexagones. Reviendront la paix et la bagarre, thèmes sur lesquels le spectateur est invité à réfléchir.

Discuss situations where everyone is expected to look/act the same (uniforms, public performances, church, etc). What happens if someone doesn’t follow the rules? When is it okay not to be the same as everyone else? Students can create projects on how they are unique. For older students, explore events in history where conformism/racism was taken to extremes. What are the ramifications of these events?
