The Death of Stalinism in Bohemia

Short film by the Czech avant-garde filmmaker Jan Svankmajer. A 10 minute crash course in modern Czech history. Even otherwise it is amusing. Some background here.

Youtube seems to have plenty of his short films. An old post on Conspirators of Pleasure here.

Wow, This completely changed my perspective of the word animation.Never seen it being used so effectively.There's even portions of Faust on youtube.
