Larry Jordan's oddly animated film "Hamfat Asar" can be seen on "American Film Treasures/Avant Garde Film: Disc 2"--a compilation of mostly forgotten art films of the 20th century. This DVD set is NOT for the casual viewer and sometimes I wonder why I watched the films--as some of them were VERY artsy and weird! The art style of this animated film is a bit like the Terry Gilliam animations on "Monty Python's Flying Circus", though Jordan's are all monochromatic and look much like 18th and 19th century drawings and photos come to life by snipping the drawings apart and moving them using stop-motion. It's not a very complicated method but they work well with the very simple bongo accompaniment. It's all a bit odd and lacks an apparent theme as because of this it is difficult, if not impossible, to rate.
