Title: Boomsville

Medium: Moving Image

Original Medium: Film

Date: 1968 (Release)

Original Summary:
"An amusing diagnosis of big city growing pains, Boomsville is an ironic view of town planning, or rather the lack of it, and what has happened to cities as a result. In cartoon animation, the film traces the growth of the typical city from a tiny settlement in the vast northern wilderness to the car-clogged metropolis of so many cities today. " - Summary from Worldcat.

"This 11-minute, animated, color film is designed to familiarize students with problems of ecology and urbanization. Without a word of narration, the film traces the growth of cities and shows what man has done to the environment. The film begins with the acquisition of land from the Indians and ends with man landing on another planet and beginning the whole process again. The film seems appropriate for students in grades 7 through adult education." - Summary from Worldcat.
