Diagonal Symphony (1919)

Diagonal Symphony (1924): One of the German silent era's earliest surviving experimental shorts is this study in transforming geometric designs by Swiss artist Viking Eggeling, who was prominent in Dadaist circles and created this from a series of sketches he compiled on scrolls he termed "picture rolls." Tragically he passed away shortly after this short's first public screening in Berlin, but his striking film (the only one still existing of the pair he created in his lifetime) went on to influence many filmmakers including Stan Brakhage.
