A mechanical man/monkey tries on his wings.

Here is a very strange little animated feature from Czech director Jan Svankmaje. It’s titled “Et Cetera” (1966) and features a mechanical man/monkey trying out different pairs of wings to some sort of dog/lizard trainer. I really like the style and use of typography for the piece…has a great woodblock marries a 1900 scientific book feel.
