The Last stone = Posledny kamen

Czechoslovakia, 1982

Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

A bitter animated joke about the frustration of being an artist in pay of the bureaucracy. A sculptor tries to impress officialdom with his most imaginative works, but does not make a hit - until the finale. The story is told with traditional animation, intercut with more experimental drawing to create geometric patterns. No narration, music and sound effects only.
