Jan Švankmajer | Czech Republic | 2010 | 90‘ | projection
The sixth Švankmajer’s feature film again upsets the basis of causal logic and rationality in our perception of reality. Surviving Life’s plot is based on a view of psychoanalysis, it is full of allusive references and the director’s typical Švankmajer humour.

György Kovásznai | Hungary | 1979 | 79’
Hungarian filmmaker Kovásznai’s feature film embarks upon erotically delicate and socially thorny topics and through the collage method he creates a rich piece of work about Hungarian culture of the time. The film, which is full of tender oil-painting and sharp line-drawings, was completed with a story line intended for adults; this line is thick with avant-garde imaginings.

Ray Nowland | Australia | 1997 | 75'
Ray Nowland’s film Go to Hell! is, in all respects, a gargantuan effort. This mixture of unbelievable adventures involving the extraterrestrial God and his devilish son aims to achieve cult status for the film. Besides a variety of seemingly incongruous motives in this parodic film treasure, there is no lack of various classical film genres.
