How Wings Are Attached to the Backs of Angels (1996)

Μια εξαιρετική ταινία μικρού μήκους από τον Καναδά, αρκετά περίεργη, μου άρεσε κυρίως αισθητικά γιατί χρησιμοποιεί την τεχνική της γκραβούρας και δημιουργεί μια σουρεαλιστική ατμόσφαιρα.

Craig Welch takes viewers inside a surreal, meticulously crafted world to meet a mysterious protagonist and his otherworldly visitor.
In this surreal exposition, we meet a man, obsessed with control. His intricate gadgets manipulate yet insulate, as his science dissects and reduces. How exactly are wings attached to the back of angels? In this invented world drained of emotion, where everything goes through the motions, he is brushed by indefinite longings. Whether he can transcend his obsessions and fears is the heart of the matter. A film without words.

…a wonderful animated (short) film by Craig Welch and the National Film Board of Canada (nfb).
“How Wings…” is the fascinating story of how an old, wealthy inventor protects himself from the outside world while he works feverishly on his plan to surgically attach a pair of wings to the back of a woman he envisions as his angel. It is a remarkable and beautiful film - see it if you have the chance. —Maverick-34 from Edmonton, Canada (imdb)
