New Wave Films are planning to release a series of Jan Švankmajer films on DVD. Starting with 'Surviving Life' today (11/06/12) and following up with 'Conspirators Of Pleasure' and 'Lunacy' later in the month.
'Surviving Life' is the latest 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. The DVD also boasts an impressive batch of extras including 3 background documentaries (45 minutes in total), 2 trailers, an alternative ending and a photo gallery.
