Jan Svankmajer films

2 Mar

It was hard to believe. I searched the DPV a number of time before I could believe that we don’t have anything by Czech master Jan Svankmajer yet. For those of you who don’t know Svankmajer, a more significant  introduction to the work of the Czech animator might be required than I can supply here, and you can find some information here on wikipedia.

Here I’ll just say that Svankmajer is a highly renowned animator and filmmaker whose work has been celebrated by the likes of Terry Gilliam and Milos Forman ever since the 1980s. These two short movies, “Dimensions of Dialogue” and “Tma, Svetlo, Tma” should serve as a decent introduction to his highly surrealistic world.
