The child then brings out a box with a tarantula in it: the professor puts his "hands" into the box and describes what he feels. The boy receives a final lesson about animation and film making; then the professor gives him a brain and his own open-book hat.The Cabinet of Jan Švankmajer is streaming with subscription on Fandor.
