Summary
  • Alice: A little girl follows an elusive White Rabbit and so begins this dream expedition into the landscape of childhood, combining techniques of animation, puppet theatre and live action in Švankmajer's surreal version of Alice's adventures in Wonderland
  • Darkness light darkness: A man literally constructs himself within the confines of a very small room -- a potent allegory of Svankmajer's life in Eastern Europe
