Alexander Calder’s wire puppet circus

boingboing has links to “Carlos Vilardebo’s 1961 documentary of mobile-maker Alexander Calder’s intricate, ingenious wire puppet circus. The flying trapeezes actually fly, the lion poops, and the belly dancer gyrates lasciviously in the mind-blowing film that shows that, had Calder not become famous as an artist, he might have been equally famous as a puppeteer. In four parts.”
