Jan SVANKMAJER’s Alice is a creepy and disturbing adaptation of Lewis CARROLL’s original vision. Combining a live-action Alice (Kristyna KOHOUTOVA) with a stop-motion Wonderland filled with threatening, bizarre characters, the film brilliantly marries a sly visual wit with piercing psychological insight.
Presented here fully uncut and in its original Czech-language version for the very first time, this comprehensive release also gathers together a selection of rare and fascinating Alice-related short films.

ABOUT THE TRANSFER
«The world is divided into two unequal camps : those who have never heard of Jan SVANKMAJER... and those who happen upon his work and know that they have come face to face with genius...»
