This is a cinematic celebration of the ancient art and craft of top-making and spinning. One hundred and twenty three tops spin through the film to the accompaniment of a lively score by Elmer Bernstein. In the words of one child who saw the film, “Tops are born, they live, and then they die.” Melbourne Film Festival Selected for participation, 1973. 20th Sydney Film Festival Selected for Exhibition, 1973.
