some Jan Švankmajer links Jan Svankmajer links
The Alchemist of the Surreal
the main online reference on Jan Švankmajer collages, drawings, sculptures, writings and of course, FILMS !
It's only a pity the site has not been updated since 1998.
The DecalogueThe Decalogue of Jan Svankmajer
the Ten Commandments according to Jan Švankmajer.
Animation of Heaven and Hell
A site by Tim Fitzpatrick containing reviews, stills and video fragments of Svankmajer films, as well as work of Ladislaw Starewicz, George Pal and the Quay Brothers. Again, a pity it hasn't been updated since 1996.
The Czech and Slovak Surrealist Group
a quite active collective, headed by mr. Švankmajer - site is in Czech, but sometimes presents great visual samples of their work. Also try the "Personal Sites" - OSOBNÍ STRÁNKY, for pages of some of the members.
Šílení - Lunacy ( site in Czech )
The website of Švankmajer's latest film, in which I worked as assistant and even spent a few short moments on screen.
