Ballet mecanique

This dyanamic 1924 short by Fernand Leger and Dudley Murphy seems to celebrate the Industrial Age. Its rapid montage of patterns and objects—most of them of modernist design—is driven by George Antheil's music, an unrelenting rush of percussion, player pianos, and a siren. 17 min.
