After having enjoyed watching an Avant-Garde short film,I decided to search around for another similar title that I could view for a poll being held on IMDb's Classic Film board for the best titles of 1926,which led to me stumbling across a movie that sounded like a very interesting study in film.
Opening with a row of human faces,the faces fade away and are replaced by eye's which scatter across the screen.

Keeping away from any use of on screen text,writer/director Hans Richter creates a deeply haunting atmosphere,thanks to Richter having still images (such as birds and human faces) be placed underneath the splashing of perfectly drawn eyes,squares and objects,as Richter reveals his study film.
