Italy and Spain, Russia, the East, and both North and Latin America are on the fringe, but only in the geographical, not the creative, sense. In these regions there emerge centers which, like Vienna, Paris or Brussels, can boast artistic giants-one need only point to Gaudi in Spain or Tiffany and Sullivan in the United States. The photograph shown in this film testify in a spectacular manner to the fantastically rapid spread of this movement all over the world, a phenomenon manifested on this scale and with this directness for the first time in the history of art and customs. This development continued, only to be utterly destroyed in the immense trauma of the First World War.Narration in English.Title in English on container: Final vortex.
