Based on woodcuts by Frans Masereel, music by Arthur Honegger

« (...) Bartosch showed that animation could be POETIC... It was Bartosch who first dared to give animation the dimension of a great art, trusting it to vopice his pain, to lay bare his heart, to tell of his hope for a better future - which he never saw. »
– Alexander Alexeieff and Claire Parker, 1969

Bartosch's only surviving film was made single-handely in Paris in 1932. Almost 45000 frames were animated on four different levels simultaneously, often with as many as 18 superimpositions made in the camera.
