Jan Svankmajer: The Ossuary and Other Tales [DVD]

Package Description: Since his first film in 1964, Jan Svankmajer (Little Otik, Lunacy) has made some of the most memorable and unique movies ever made. 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." Kimstim is proud to present this second astounding collection of remarkable short works from an artist who has mesmerized audiences the world over and has inspired filmmakers from the Brothers Quay to Tim Burton and Terry Gilliam. "Unless we again begin to tell fairly tales and ghost stories before going to sleep and recounting our dreams upon waking, nothing more is to be expected of our Western civilization." - Jan Svankmajer
