Name That Trauma:: Caffeinated Joe on a Doll Mask Short

November 12th, 2019 by unkle lancifer · 7 Comments

My brother-in-law needs help:


“I went to see some kinetic sculpture today and it reminded me of a creepy film short I’ve seen before but can’t find it googling every different keyword I can think of. I think the filmmaker’s name began with the letter K. It was in black and white and was creepy and weird and maybe had a beetle in it? Don’t rightly remember but trying to find it. Also, if it helps I think there may have been doll masks stitched together with twine and weird stuff like that. I initially thought Kafka but it wasn’t him but the name sounded the same. Thanks again!”


Any one have any ideas?

Thanks for posting! Hopefully someone can help, cause I do not know what this is.

Try looking into the films and shorts of Jan Švankmajer. Also look into The Quay Brothers and their short films. This descriptions sounds just like their stuff. Maybe K = Quay?

This sounds a lot like Blood Tea and Red String by Christiane Cegavske, although it isn’t in black and white and isn’t a short. I’m probably wrong but thought I’d throw it out there!

I am going to let him know the thoughts so far. Thanks!

Okay, sent him this page and he wrote that he figured it out himself. It was the Nine Inch Nails video for Closer (Director’s Cut).

Thanks for the help, all.
