Look Again Series
Journey of the Blob

An illustration of the water cycle in a cautionary tale about pollution.

A printer-friendly version of this page 10 minutes
Directed by Bill Maylone
Produced by The National Film Board of Canada

This classic, wordless film from the "Look Again" series tells a story that appeals to all ages, and is used widely in environmental education courses around the country.

A boy makes a decision about how to dispose of a green glob he has concocted. What will happen if he dumps it into a stream? Where does water come from and where does it go? This film illustrates the water cycle and raises many questions about environmental responsibility and the consequences of our decisions.

"Who says the video medium has no place in literacy? In an era rife with the claims of the supremacy of print, these fine videos (the Look Again series) not only make kids look again, but they also make them think and learn."

"Very creative and imaginative--an excellent presentation of concepts for a young audience. This is a good program for repeat showings. The explanatory materials for teachers are unusually detailed."
AFVA Evaluations

"Well photographed, catching many details that will interest viewers."
