Produced by the National Park Service and the US Department of the Interior, this short educational film uses finger painting to illustrate the destructive influences of human behavior on the natural environment. The perspective comes from the artist so that the paintings take up the entire screen. The artist begins each painting with a picturesque nature scene. Then he or she introduces some sign of human influence and proceeds to erase the entire landscapes with a swipe of the hand.
