Close-Up on Jan Švankmajer

This programme presents a selection of 22 short films – exploring Czech Surrealist filmmaker-animator Jan Švankmajer diversity of methods and styles – and his unique adaptation of Alice in Wonderland.

Take Two: Carnival of Souls / Yella

Herk Harvey’s macabre masterpiece gained a cult following through late night television and has been bootlegged for years. Made by industrial filmmakers on a modest budget, Carnival of Souls was intended to have the "look of a Bergman" and "feel of a Cocteau". Based on the narrative structure of Carnival of Souls, Yella transports the action to modern day Germany. In this chilling mystery thriller, Yella takes up a new job in the West and finds herself in the unfamiliar world of venture capitalism.

Take Two: Gilda / Mulholland Drive

"Gilda, are you decent?" Rita Hayworth tosses her hair back and slyly responds, "Me?”" in one of the great star entrances in movie history. "What's your name? My name's... Rita".
