Why Man Creates, 1968

A friend recently mentioned to me a moment from a video he'd once seen..  The sequence he described sounded funny and so I decided to go on a search for it.  When I began looking for it I had no idea that it was the short film "Why Man Creates" that he was talking about.  I saw this film sometime in my childhood though I don't recall what the circumstances were.  I'm not sure what my reaction to the film was at the time but it is interesting to look at it through my eyes as they are today. 

The film doesn't actually answer the question of why human beings create but I don't think that was the intent of its creators.  Perhaps they only mean to leave the viewer asking him or herself the same question.  Why do people create?  Why do I create?  Why do you create?
