Note accompanying YouTube film

From Edgar Dutka, writing about The Hand in Animation World Magazine in 2000:
"It is curious that Trnka predicted his own fate in it. When Jiri Trnka died in November 1969 (at only 57 years of age), he had a State funeral with honours. Only four months later, The Hand was banned; all copies were confiscated by the secret police, put in a safe and the film was forbidden for screening for next twenty years. A seventeen minute long puppet film intimidated the unlimited power of the Totalitarian State."

I'm scared of the middle place between light and nowhere
