Back in 1965, Jim Henson, the great puppeteer, wrote, directed and starred in a short experimental film, Time Piece, which premiered at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC. Running a short nine minutes, the film takes a surreal look at the passing of time. And, despite veering off into rather strange territory, the film struck a chord with critics and the film community. Time Piece would be nominated for an Academy Award.
