Jan Svankmajer's ALICE

Legendary filmmaker Jan Svankmajer will be speaking to the
CAC audience live from Prague via Skype

When Alice follows the White Rabbit into Wonderland, so begins this dream expedition into the
astonishing landscape of childhood, through many dangerous adventures, and ultimately to
Alice's trial before the King and Queen of Hearts. Czech animator Jan Svankmajer has created a
masterpiece of cinema, a strikingly original interpretation of Lewis Carroll's classic tale. Svankmajer's
Alice remains true to the absurdity of Carroll's original, but bears the stamp of his own distinctive
style and obsessions. Combining techniques of animation and live action, he gives a new and fascinating dimension to the classic
tale of childhood fantasies. One of the great Czech filmmakers, Jan Svankmajer was born in 1934 in Prague where he still lives. He
trained at the Institute of Applied Arts from 1950 to 1954 and then at the Prague Academy of Performing Arts. Svankmajer made
his first film in 1964 and for over thirty years has gained a reputation as one of the world's foremost animators, and influencing
filmmakers from Tim Burton to The Brothers Quay. (Czechoslovakia, 1988, 86 min., color, video)
