Dir. Jan Svankmajer (Connoisseur Video for the BFI, CAT No CR057, 70 mins, Black & White and Colour, UK VHS PAL)


Back cover: Jan Svankmajer's films have electrified and fascinated British audiences since the BFI-sponsored programmes 'Alchemists of the Surreal' introduced them in the mid-80s.  Their imagery is violent, witty, macabre and always perverse in its bizarre transformations of objects and beings. His films have spawned many imitations in TV advertising and music video as well as inspiring fellow-animators and countless young film makers.


DIMENSIONS OF DIALOGUE is a brilliant indictment of human alienation symbolised by cannibalism. THE FLAT pits a man against a malevolent room in a special effects tour de force. Two magicians fight to the death in THE LAST TRICK, while DOWN TO THE CELLAR probes the roots of childhood fear and VIRILE GAMES finds all the world's a battlefiled.


This Connoiseur Video includes full sleeve notes and a filmography on the inner sleeve.
