Svankmaer has been called a genius by Terry Gillam, so that makes him rather special. His animation is like nobody else’s and this film will be based on a play by the Capek brothers, who are also extraordinary talents from the country that has thrown up more than its fair share of strangely talented artists.
The film has been planned for some 40 years but they are now in need of money to complete it so are appealing via Crowdfunding.
Watch this clip and donate if you can. The world needs this strangeness.
