Tango by Zbigniew Rybczyński

Thirty-six characters from different stages of life – representations of different times – interact in one room, moving in loops, observed by a static camera. Rybczynski had to draw and paint about 16.000 cell-mattes, and make several hundred thousand exposures on an optical printer. It took a full seven months, sixteen hours per day, to make the piece. (1980)

Inspiration for the Bonobo video ‘Cirrus’ (2013)
