Very simply, TIME PIECE is the story of Everyman, frustrated by the typical tasks of a typical day. In Jim Henson's Academy AwardÂ®-nominated short, the narrative is presented without dialogue. The man's experiences, actual or conceptual, are visualized through stream-of-consciousness editing, epitomized by quick cuts leading the viewer from a jungle sequence to a scene in a nightclub to a race through a cemetery. With a rhythmic soundtrack underscoring the action and a sly sense of humor, the film explores human perception interacting with modern life. This short is part of a larger collection of rare early films by one of the world's most beloved storytellers and puppeteers: Jim Henson.
