Orpheus and Eurydice [Orfeusz i Eurydyka] (1961)

13 min.; Poland; no subtitles; director: Edward Sturlis

A “Puppetoon” style retelling of the tragic tale of Orpheus and his lost love. It features a very vivid rendering of the Underworld, with Hades and Persephone represented as strange iconic totems.

Thanks to Ośrodek Badań nad Tradycją Antyczną (@OBTAUW) for sharing this with me.
