Ladislaw Satrewicz was a pioneering Russian animator who, after failing to film stag beetles fighting, decided to use stop-motion instead. His films, equally whimsically and sardonic, are still stunning today and you can see his influence in Jan Svanmajer, the Brothers Quay, Tim Burton, Henry Selnick, and others. This DVD contains 6 short films, including his best known, "The Cameraman's Revenge." Very cool.
