Russian matryoshka dolls dance playfully in long lines and short hops, twirling, nestling, and rearranging to Russian music. This is Dutch-Canadian filmmaker Co Hoedeman‘s Matrioska (1970), a stop-motion short for the National Film Board of Canada.
Three years later, Sesame Street would make their own matryoshka doll stop motion. Watch Russian nesting dolls 1-10 next.
