New Janko the Musician

Nowy Janko muzykant

Directed by Jan Lenica
Poland, 1961
Animation, Short


Henryk Sienkiewicz’s Janko the Musician is shifted forward in time to when farmers use helicopters to get to their fields. Folklore mixes with Mrożek-like absurdities, and science-fiction-like images merge into Victorian prints.
