019 | Street of Crocodiles (Ulica krokodyli), Timothy and Stephen QUAY, 1986, GB

Part 1

Part 2

A man closes up a lecture hall; he reaches into a box and snips the string holding a gaunt puppet. Released, the puppet warily explores the darkened rooms about him. The desolate ambiance and haunting musical score convey a sense of isolation and futility, forcing the viewer into immediate identification with the mute protagonist as he explores a realm of mechanical realities and manufactured pleasures.
Nominated for the 1986 Palm d'Or for Animated Short Film.
