popovic.jpg

Untitled painting by Serbian Surrealist Ljuba Popovic (1934–2016).

Short films by Walerian Borowczyk

borowczyk.jpg

Les Astronautes (1959). A nice collection of shorts by Walerian Borowczyk (1923–2006) at Ubuweb including this animated piece from 1959 which was co-directed by Chris Marker. The style is immediately reminiscent of that employed by Raoul Servais in Harpya and other films; it’s also not far removed from Terry Gilliam’s animation but it predates both. […]
