Today is the anniversary of the death in 1955 of artist and film maker Fernand Leger. MoMA had an exhibition of his work in 1998. AbstractModern.com has some information on him here.
Ballet Mechanique (1924) can be watched in one piece at ubuweb or in 2 parts at youtube.
FilmReference.com has a page on the film.
The picture at the top of the post is Leger's Railway Crossing (1919).
