building a new body

this is a short film by jan svankmajer, called “tma, svetlo, tma” (“darkness, light, darkness”). it’s a claymation / stop-motion animation of body parts coming together to build a new body. the clay body is anatomically correct, so watch out!

jan svankmajer was born in prague in 1934. i really like his surreal animations. he shows the meat and machinery of the body parts fitting together. and there’s a lot of strange eating going on.

that’s how i feel these days.
