Lifted from Voltage:
"Terminus is a brilliant and creepy short film about brutalist urban design run amok. The inhabitants of an unknown city in the 1970s are menaced by walking pieces of sculpture, architecture, and street furniture:

All the period details are just right: from the locations, to the grainy film look, to the abstract electronic soundtrack (drawing on the same retro synthesizer stylings -- commonly featured in '70s educational films and TV shows -- that Boards of Canada have been referencing in their work for years)."

Stunningly beautiful, horrifyingly bleak, and innocently charming...
This is almost exactly how I remember the '70s.
And the unmistakable scent of old glass tube style Magic Markers, of course.
