How Wings Are Attached To the Backs Of Angels (1996)

by Craig Welch (1996)

"Craig Welch takes viewers inside a surreal, meticulously crafted world to meet a mysterious protagonist and his otherworldly visitor.
In this surreal exposition, we meet a man, obsessed with control. His intricate gadgets manipulate yet insulate, as his science dissects and reduces. How exactly are wings attached to the back of angels? In this invented world drained of emotion, where everything goes through the motions, he is brushed by indefinite longings. Whether he can transcend his obsessions and fears is the heart of the matter. A film without words."

The Glass Harmonica (1968)

Part 2
Director: Andrei Khrjanovsky
"Long ago there was created a magical musical instrument: the glass harmonica, its sound inspired high thoughts and fine actions."

"Although the events of this film are of a fantastic character, its authors would like to remind you of boundless greed, police terror, the isolation and brutalisation of humans in modern bourgeois society"

"Science Friction" (1959)

"Wonderful cut and paste animation from the master of collage."
