  • Short Summary

    A blind man chops a tree down then does some bricklaying - building a wall from rocks.

  • Description

    No title. C/U of a miniature house - probably a bird house. Camera pans across to show an American flag flying beside the house. M/S of a man feeling the bottom of a tree trunk with his hands. He then uses an axe to chop it down.

    "Though blind -- he cuts them down --" M/S of him pushing down the tree. He turns around and we see that he wears dark glasses. " -- and puts them up!" M/S of the man building a wall from large pieces of rock.

    Note: this is almost certainly an extract from the Walter Futter film "Back Home".
