About the Author

Czech Surrealist, Jan Aevankmajer, is best known for his extraordinary animated films, Alice, Faust, Little Otik among them. His work far exceeds the limits of film and, whether film, visual or literary, is connected with the collective activities of the Group of Czech & Slovak Surrealists.


'It is typically vankmajer: erudite and very consequential. Sometimes also very funny and erotic. Totally unique and a brilliant example of how Czech intellectuals and artists were capable despite total isolation and censorship under Communism of discovering cosmopolitan islands of knowledge where you would least expect them.' Michael Havas, Czech documentary film producer/director
