Lampa (English: The Lamp) is one of Polish director Roman Polanski's early short films. The eight-minute piece, released in 1959, has an elderly dollmaker hard at work in his shop. Once he's headed off home, the film focuses on apparent whisperings amongst the miscellaneous doll-parts he's left behind. The shop then goes on to catch fire, but this remains unnoticed by the passers-by. Polanski can be glimpsed in a cameo role as a passer-by outside the shop.
