Re: Weird Short Film of the Day

Sorry for any reposts.

Brian Butler's "Night of Pan" (film length: 42 seconds):


This can probably be seen in light of the Kenneth Anger and Picnic at Hanging Rock thread, as well as references to Machen's "The Great God Pan".

Georges Schwizgebel- The Man without Shadow


(Dictated while taking a stroll) I have come to realizewhat a superbly contrived marionette man is. Though without strings attached, one can strut, jump, hop and, moreover, utter words, an elaborately made puppet! Who knows? At the Bon season next year, I may be a new dead invited to the Bon festival. What an evanescent world! This truth keeps slipping off our minds.

- Tsunetomo Yamamoto, The Hagakure

Re: Weird Short Film of the Day


Made in 1963, Lenica created "Labyrinth" a self-consciously Kafka-esque tale of a winged lonely man literally devoured by totalitarian rule. Along with Jiř Trnka's Ruka (The Hand, 1965), Labirynt is considered to be one of the finest political animations ever made.

Jan Lenica's checkered career has encompassed excursions into music, architecture, poster-making, costume design, children's book illustration, and all aspects of filmmaking. It is, however, for his animation that he is best known, particularly his collage and "cutout" films, which have their roots in the art of Max Ernst and John Heartfield. The films have influenced the work of Jan Švankmajer and Terry Gilliam.

In the 1950s, his films with Walerian Borowczyk led an aesthetic revolution in Poland that sent reverberations all over the Eastern European animation scene. Before Lenica entered the scene, Polish animation consisted mainly of American-influenced character animation, over which the shadow of Walt Disney lugubriously hung, sometimes with vaguely political overtones on the fringe. Lenica and Borowczyk moved the avant-garde into the mainstream. They attempted to forge a new experimental cinema that would coalesce contemporary artistic practices such as abstraction, collage, and satirical surrealism without jettisoning commitment to the Marxist concepts of artistic integration of form and content and art for the masses. Often their films deal with alienation in a modern world, and the challenge of the detritus of history, figured in their use of old newspaper and postcards and the ironic confrontation with the "Great Masters" of painting which consume the protagonist of Once upon a Time . . . . In The House, a wide range of techniques illustrate a strange mechanical rite. The rough simplicity of their materials in these films conveys simultaneously the menace of an absurd disordered universe, and an affecting artlessness of execution.

Re: Weird Short Film of the Day

some terrific findings from everyone...

with Latchkey's Lament I notice it is credited to Troy Nixey. Loved his comic work w/ Mignola and Gaiman.

The Georges Schwizgebel stuff is a revelation. Love the tumbling "camera work." The way the scenes progress in the Man Without Shadow bring to mind the lengthy opening shot in Irreversible.

Re: Weird Short Film of the Day

technology has caught up to the film in terms of cgi, but, still has a creepy quality:
