Athanor: The Alchemical Furnace

Adam Ol'ha, Jan Daňhel

Slovakia / Czech Republic
Documentary, 2020, 117'

Jan Švankmajer is the subject of this documentary, which honors his cinematographic work and his mastery, with whom the filmmakers spent three years distilling thoughts on topics such as his fetishes or his views on humanity. It is a three-pronged film, which needs two structural blocks of Švankmajer’s life: Jaromír Kallista, his producer, and Eva Švankmajerová, his wife and muse, who appears in the film through the doors of memory, dreams, and archives.
