No 61 Martin Zimmermann & Augustin RebetezSwitzerland (1970 & 1986)
Les catacombes de Mr. Skeleton
Produced in stop motion with a DIY and rock’n’roll aesthetic, these 12 black and white short films feature a multitude of characters embodied by performer Martin Zimmermann. The most evil of them all, Mr Skeleton, invites himself into each episode to restore order to this world of rascals and deceivers. The result of a unique collaboration between Martin Zimmermann and Augustin Rebetez, this series of films inspired by the classics of silent burlesque cinema delivers a biting vision of the quirks of contemporary society. These videos transform the basement of this former hardware shop into mysterious catacombs filled with extravagant creatures.
