Film description

Marie Zemanová began her twenty-year collaboration with surrealist filmmaker Jan Švankmajer working on his feature-film debut, Alice. A dark reworking of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, Švankmajer’s interpretation is a wildly inventive and eerily captivating work of fantasy. When Alice follows the White Rabbit down the rabbit hole she enters a nightmarish world, and must navigate a bleak and desolate landscape filled with bizarre and threatening characters. Zemanová expertly cuts between live action footage and stop-motion animation to create an immersive visual experience.
