A column of tanks drives through sand, until a wheel made of soldiers’ boots tramples down the tanks. Filmmaker Sietske Tjallingii used the boot wheel, better known as Eric Staller's bootank, to denounce and satirically comment on the patriotism and military display of power by post-911 America, referring to Charlie Chaplin's The Great Dictator. Tjallingii does so in three minutes.
