A brief newsreel interlude advertising the journal of the Polish Youth Union (ZMP), ‘Sztandar Młodych’ (Banner of Youth), both recycles the montage of found footage in Once Upon a Time and adds a hand painted element, recalling the pioneering films of Norman McLaren and Len Lye (whose work must count as a major inspiration for both Borowczyk and Lenica) and pre-empting later works by Julian Antonisz.
