A solider is put through a succession of increasingly ridiculous training moves before retreating into day dreams and fantasy… Borowczyk’s first professional solo work, The School is almost exclusively made up of photographs of an  actor (Bronisław Stefanik), which are then ordered to create movement. Once again, recalling the innovation of Norman McLaren, Borowczyk nevertheless harks back to the fantasy of Georges Méliès, not to mention the pre-cinema of Étienne-Jules Marey and Eadweard Muybridge.
