Jan Svankmajer: Surviving Life

'Surviving Life' is the new feature film by internationally acclaimed director and animator, Jan Švankmajer. Using a mix of cut-out animation from photographs and live-action segments, 'Surviving Life' brings with it another extraordinary offering from Svankmajer's unique and surreal vision, told through the darkly humorous story of a married man who lives a double life in his dreams.

Featuring an eye-popping array of giant snakes, chickens, eggs and feet, which constantly pop out of photographed Czech buildings, 'Surviving Life' has been described as an offbeat, 'psychoanalytical comedy'. It premiered at the 67th Venice International Film Festival and will be released in the UK on 2 December 2011 (although I can't find it being screened anywhere yet.)
