Films and Conversations Series

Experience the Surrealism of Czech filmmaker and animator, Jan Švankmajer

This program of short films will present the work of the surreal Czech filmmaker Jan Švankmajer, an animator who has long engaged with the history of puppetry—from Punch and Judy to folk traditions. Including such work as Jabberwocky, adapted from a poem in Alice in Wonderland, this unusual collection of films is occasionally grotesque, occasionally grown-up, but always riveting.

Introduced by Dr. Patrick Ellis, Assistant Professor of Communication at the University of Tampa. 

Location: Mainstage Theater
