The Cabinet of Jan Švankmajer, Prague’s Alchemist of Film
This early film by renowned animators the Quay Brothers is structured as a series of little lessons in perception, taught by a puppet simulacrum of Jan ŠVANKMAJER, whose head is an opened book, to a puppet whose head the master empties of dross and refills with a similar open book. Each of the nine segments or chapters “refers variously to the importance of objects in ŠVANKMAJER’s work, their transformation and bizarre combination through specifically cinematic techniques.
