Flashback Friday: Frank Film - Frank Mouris (1973)

Ken Broomfield mentioned this on the AE-List earlier in November and I thought it would be a perfect submission for Flashback Friday.

This animated short features two intertwined soundtracks, produced by Tony Schwartz. In one, Frank reads is autobiography and in the second, he lists words beginning with the letter "f." The visuals include an animated collage of photos that Frank had cut from magazines and arranged by theme. I was born the year this came out, but the soundtrack reminds me of Radiohead's "Fitter Happier".

From Wikipedia: ."The movie won the 1974 Academy Award for Best Short Subject, Animated Films. In 1996, Frank Film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being 'culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant'."
