A was an animated film created by Jan Lenica in 1965. It was about a writer literally being tormented by the letter "A". Just when he thinks he has gotten rid of it, a "B" shows up and continues to torture the writer. Lenica described it as follows: "It is a very simple film, with only one man and one letter in one set design. It is about a conflict between the man and the letter."

For a long time, the film was believed to be lost, as it was not released on any home media nor uploaded online and only two prints were known to exist. However, on March 27th 2016, the short was uploaded by Youtuber "Namfoodle" via an episode of a 1973 show called Screening Room. The short can be viewed below.

The fact that we live in an age where people can upload this lost content to Youtube anonymously is astounding. Almost spooky.

The fact that in this day and age where technology is at its highest yet things like the possible Powerpuff 2016 Pitch Pilot (which may have the original VAs) makes things weird allround.

I'm polish and i understand the poster. I can't see the small writing on the top left but it's saying "A compilation of Polish experimental animation"
