How Wings Are Attached To The Backs of Angels

Once again, the National Film Board of Canada funds another exquisite animated piece. This one is "How Wings Are Attached To The Backs of Angels" made in 1996 by Craig Welch. In it, we meet a man obsessed with control; his intricate gadgets manipulate yet insulate, as his science dissects and reduces. The storyline is surreal to the point of being difficult to understand, but the artwork is stunning and well worth the 11 minute length of this piece.
