|This movie, available in DVD format, is based on Edwin A. Abbott's classic novel, Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions. Flatland is a world that exists entirely on a two-dimensional plane. All different kinds of shapes live, work, and play in this world. This is the story of how Arthur Square and his six-sided granddaughter, Hex, travel to a world that most Flatlanders consider ridiculous and blasphemous--the 3rd dimension. "Flatland: The Movie" is a thirty minute animated story filled with action, drama, and geometry lessons. This heartfelt tale challenges audiences to grasp the limitations of their assumptions about reality, and to think about higher dimensions.
