Jan Svankmajer: doordrenkt van surrealisme
Special evening on surrealism in Jan Švankmajer's work with guest Laurens Vancrevel, compiler of the book What Will Be. Almanac of the International Surrealist Movement (2014). Includes a screening of Alice (1987).
Steaks, pebbles, iron locks: master animator Jan Švankmajer (Prague, 1934) can bring anything to life. His films are filled with obsession, lust, horror and eroticism, all underpinned by an undercurrent of abuse of power. Eye Filmmuseum presents the exhibition Jan Švankmajer - The Alchemical Wedding devoted to the work of Czech surrealist and master animator.
