A bizarre, semi-abstract animated film, based around the theme of angels being processed by a nightmarish factory. It has been interpreted as an allegory of the concentration camp experience and as a portrait of the industrialization and collectivization of the Soviet period.

    Walerian Borowczyk is one of the most controversial names in the history of cinema. Inspiring the likes of novelist Angela Carter, filmmakers Terry Gilliam, the Quays brothers, and Jan Švankmajer, Borowczyk’s wild imagination and dark humor has been described as “when Kafka meets Bruñel.” Some call him a genius who crossed from painting, animation, to live-action; some call him a prurient, exploitative, obscene pornographer, like all those that sprung up with the 1970s relaxation of censorship.
