I’m not sure exactly what this is all about but it is oddly compelling. Here’s the description from Vimeo: Mapping during 600 years anniversary of the astrological tower clock situated at Old Town Square in center of Prague. Found at Vimeo from The Macula.

Alice In Wonderland Adaptation – Short Film

Friday, March 26th, 2010

Czech animator Jan Svankmajer has created a masterpiece of cinema, a strikingly original interpretation of Lewis Carroll’s classic tale. Svankmajer’s Alice remains true to the absurdity of Carroll’s original, but bears the stamp of his own distinctive style and obsessions. Combining techniques of animation and live action, he gives a new and fascinating dimension to the classic tale of childhood fantasies. Found at YouTube from firstrunfeaturesnyc.
