From a reader. A pioneering puppet/animation film from Russian expat Wladyslaw Starewicz.
Made in 1922, supposedly for children, there is a strong political/moral theme throughout…
Man’s age old desire to pass responsibility up the line to a higher political authority and the inevitable enslavement and death that decision entails.
The accompanying music, though possibly not original, is spooky and very cool.
