Ignorance is a puppet documentary about the evolution of happiness. Where did it come from, and where did it go? Sure, we’ve got microwaves, airplanes, and nagging senses of dissatisfaction – but our prehistoric ancestors, stamping their grubby feet by firelight in common triumph over the steaming corpse of an eviscerated mastodon, might just have felt more at home in the world. With much grunting and shrieking and gnawing on bones, the Old Trouts will explain where we went wrong, and how we might find our way once again. Not only that: it’s the first attempt at what we’re calling Open Creation – the entire show has been written on the web for all to see and for all to comment, criticize, or contribute. Visit www.theoldtrouts.org/ignorance to see how it all went. Conceived by Old Trouts Judd Palmer, Pete Balkwill and Pityu Kenderes.
