Junk Head 1, a stop motion clone film by Takahide Hori, takes a close look at the hypothetical conflict between humans and clones. The film may only be 30 minutes, but it is packed full of emotion and ethical dilemma.

With the way clones have been represented in modern media, it seems like it's more a matter of when not if we will eventually see them come up. What does this mean for humankind? It can mean a lot of things. In the short film Junk Head, it means fierce battles and conflict.

The story is complex, but at the core, it involves humans gaining pseudo-immortality as long as their new forms are maintained on a ten year basis. With their newfound immortality though, comes a loss of the ability to reproduce. All of this ends up with the humans cloning themselves and the real story starts.

This stop motion clone film is cool because it shows a possible and incredibly intense future for humanity which is always interesting.
