Rhythm

Loading the player...

Len Lye’s avant garde television commercial for Chrysler was constructed out of stock footage of a car being built on an assembly line, sped up through jump cuts and accompanied by African drumming. The effect is energetic and very modern; unfortunately, while Rhythm was later admired for its artistic qualities, the client disliked it so much it was never aired.
