A very short film about church steeples, made with 1970s-style "special fx" (balsa-wood models & miniature sets).

"Out of the blue comes one of the most insane animated films in the Festival's 30th season.
Church steeples inexplicably launch themselves into the stratosphere and beyond
in a satirical nod to the classic Stanley Kubrick film 2001 & Star Trek."

As I look back on my childhood, I realize that a religious upbringing and my love for 1970s "special fx" movies have become conflated in my head.
This film is probably a result of that.
