  • Description

    Titles read: "PATHETONE - Presents CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    In Prague, Czechoslovakia, we see firemen in gas masks putting out a fire in a building. A fireman overcome by fumes is carried to a safe area and has a bulky artificial respirator mask placed over his face. Various shots of the apparatus working.

    Various shots of children (probably in Czechoslovakia) playing and riding bicycles while wearing gas masks. They push prams and scooters along a road and sit in a row on a fence by a cornfield - it's all quite sinister!

    In Tarongo Park in Sydney, Australia, we see a lioness with five baby lion cubs. The cubs sit in a corner and snarl at a little girl.

    At Hamburg Zoo in Germany, we see monkeys swinging on branches and poles to the delight of the watching crowd. A keeper feeds the sea lions - one is an enormous sea elephant that honks at the camera.
