Animated Life: Pangeae

Animated Life: Pangeae

This short, animated film is part of the Animated Life series by The New York Times. It tells the tale of Alfred Wegener, a meteorologist famous for his travels across the North-Pole. While there he invented a theory that the Earth consists of plates that move horizontally. This idea is nowadays recognized as true, but in the early 20th century was very controversial, not in the least because Wegener was not a geologist. Here the story is told with appealing animation made out of cut-outs.
