if we had only tried

If we had only tried is a Stop Motion Animation/Music Video that tries to deal with topics such as Inequities, Contradictions, Dependencies and Balance of Power in an ironic and playful way. We are thrown into a quite complex and complicated world, and sometimes feel like puppets in an absurd system we don ́t understand.
Maybe we should stand up to and raise our voice against this system, and maybe us "little creatures" should have trust in and collaborate with each other to become a bigger one... (R.B.)
