Overview

Since his first film in 1964, Jan Svankmajer has made memorable, unique movies. Animator, poet, sculptor, designer and self-proclaimed "militant Surrealist," his films present a delirious combination of puppets, humans, stop-motion animation, and live action. Svankmajer's films conjure up a dreamlike universe that is at once dark, macabre, witty, and perversely visceral. Or, as the great director Milos Forman once offered, "Disney + Buñuel = Svankmajer." This astounding collection of mesmerizing short works includes: The Last Trick (1964, color, 11:30 mins.); Don Juan (1970, color, 31 mins.); The Garden (1968, B&W, 19 mins.); Historia Naturae (1967, color, 9 mins.); Johann Sebastian Bach (1965, B&W, 9:30 mins.); The Ossuary (1970, B&W, 10 mins.); Castle of Otranto (1973-'79, color, 17 mins.); Darkness / Light / Darkness (1989, color, 8 mins.); Many Games (1988, color, 12 mins.).
