A magnificently animated film on the dawn of human civilization. Watch Bet She'an by David Calvet and Banditscollective team.

In the city of Bet She'an, where mankind is progressively morphing into crows, a sculptor decides to leave a trace of this dwindling humanity.


Panoramic shots and aggressive beak-people will never get tired of wandering through the ruins and hindering a lone, bearded man from finishing his enormous statue.

Directed by Bet She'an team and participating the France-based, Bet She'an is a brilliantly colored and animated parable of the end of human civilization, and the need to preserve Homo Erectus, even in its solely artistic form.
