  • Description

    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    In a Kent village, we see a man carving wooden decoy ducks out of wood that are used to fool real birds into rifle range. He paints them to look like pigeons and ducks.

    In Warsaw, Poland, we see men doing balancing tricks on bicycles at a 'meet'. They seem to be in a circus ring. The men play cycle polo, flicking the ball with deft pings of their front wheels. Then they race against each other, while their bikes are on stationary rollers; a dial behind them marks their speed.
