Thursday, Jun 21 at 08:00PM
Jan Svankmajer is back with the most unpretentious mind-bender you'll ever find in the romantic comedy section. At the beginning of Surviving Life, the director apologizes for the film's mix of live action and paper animation and then launches into the story of a middle-aged office worker who meets the woman of his dreams in his dreams. The character's dilemma beckons the viewer to choose one reality or another, tempering our confusion with delight.
