1926 Silhouettenfilm von Lotte Reiniger, Musik von Wolfgang Zeller

"Mit dem Silhouettenfilm 'Die Abenteuer des Prinzen Achmed' schuf Lotte Reiniger (1899 – 1981) den ersten langen Animationsfilm der Filmgeschichte und entwickelte Technik sowie Ästhetik dieses Genres bereits in den 20er Jahren zur künstlerischen Perfektion. Ihr Stil knüpft an die chinesischen Schattenspiele an, die sie durch die Möglichkeiten des Films erweiterte. Zu diesem an sich stummen Film (es gibt einige Zwischentitel) komponierte Wolfgang Zeller eine Tonspur für Orchester."

The Open Road: an early travelogue in colour

"In 1924 Claude Friese–Greene (cinematographer and son of moving–image pioneer William) embarked on an intrepid road trip from Land's End to John O'Groats. He recorded his journey on film, using an experimental colour process. Entitled The Open Road, this remarkable travelogue was conceived as a series of 26 short episodes, to be shown weekly at the cinema."

Anemic Cinema (1926) by Marcel Duchamp

"This characteristically dada film by Marcel Duchamp consists of a series of visual and verbal puns with nonsense phrases inscribed around rotating spiral patterns, creating an almost hypnotic effect. Silent.

Anemic Cinema (various versions were made in 1920, 1923 and, finally, in 1926). Essentially a film by Duchamp with help from Man Ray. Calvin Tomkins: 'Duchamp used the initial payment on his inheritance to make a film and to go into the art business. The film, shot in Man Ray's studio with the help of cinematographer Marc Allégret, was a seven–minute animation of nine punning phrases by Rrose Sélavy. These had been pasted, letter by letter, in a spiral pattern on round black discs that were then glued to phonograph records; the slowly revolving texts alternate with shots of Duchamp's Discs Bearing Spirals, ten abstract designs whose turning makes them appear to move backward and forward in an erotic rhythm. The little film, which Duchamp called Anemic Cinema, had its premiere that August at a private screening room in Paris.'"

In 70 years humans eat 1,400 times their weight

An "illustration from Fritz Kahn's encyclopediatic series of books 'Das Leben des Menschen; eine volkstümliche Anatomie, Biologie, Physiologie und Entwick–lungs–geschichte des Menschen' (The Life of Humans: A Popular Anatomy, Biology, Physiology and a History of the Development of Humans) titled 'In 70 Years the Man Eats 1,400 Times its Weight' which purports to show the amount of food the average man eats in 70 years as train cars full of food."
