The Collected Shorts of Jan Svankmajer: Vol. 2

2003 NR

For nearly half a century, surrealist filmmaker Jan Svankmajer has been heralded as one of modern cinema's most inventive visual artists. This gallery of macabre shorts including "Down to the Cellar," "Meat Love," "Flora" and "Food" reveals why Svankmajer is inspiration to modern-day moviemakers. His warped, dreamlike approach to a mix of techniques and styles has influenced such visual craftsmen as the Brothers Quay and Terry Gilliam.
