“Time Piece” by Jim Henson

My old pal A.K. introduced me to this little film called “Time Piece”. It is an experimental film that was created by Jim Henson back in 1965. It has some classic Henson elements, such as: dancing chickens, explosions, jazz drummers, colorful animated shapes, naked children, strippers, and chaos. It was nominated for an Oscar.

IMDB says this:

Dislocation in time, time signatures, time as a philosophical concept, and slavery to time are some of the themes touched upon in this nine-minute, experimental film, which was written, directed, and produced by Jim Henson-and starred Jim Henson! Screened for the first time at the Museum of Modern Art in May of 1965, Time Piece enjoyed an eighteen-month run at one Manhattan movie theater and was nominated for an Academy Award for outstanding short subject.

ps- Frank Oz is also in it.
