Jan Svankmajer

jan svankmajer is a surrealist filmmaker from prague. he’s made a good number of films, often incorporating stop-motion animation and/or puppetry. tim burton likes him a lot, but the communists do not, and back in 1972, they forced him to stop making films.

later, he made more films.

i haven’t seen any of his features, but after watching some youtube stuff, i really want to see them.
