The Czech Republic’s reputation as the mecca of puppetr, & stop motion animation is a legacy that’s yielded surreal post war visionaries like Jiří Barta & Jiří Trnka. But it’s Sculptor / Artist Jan Svankmajer work & filmography that gave the region worldwide acclaim with his whimsical & often macabre works giving life to inanimate objects, the writings of Marquis Desade, or furniture which buries its owner. In this 2 disc DVD collection, all of his best works are included. This was kept in a smoke free environment & is tested; but if you want us to smoke a pack of cigarettes next to it and blow it on the box we can free of charge. This item comes with free shipping.
