This short film is a groovy meditation on time in a few of its facets:
“Dislocation in time, time signatures, time as a philosophical concept, and slavery to time are some of the themes touched upon in this nine-minute, experimental film, which was written, directed, and produced by Jim Henson-and starred Jim Henson! Screened for the first time at the Museum of Modern Art in May of 1965, Time Piece enjoyed an eighteen-month run at one Manhattan movie theater and was nominated for an Academy Award for outstanding short subject
It’s also bloody funny. Trust Jim Henson to make high art that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
Thanks Laughing Squid!
