Insects

Jan Švankmajer

Czech Republic / Slovakia
Fiction / Animation, 2018, 98'

Jan Švankmajer thought that this would be his last film. An adaptation of a satirical theater comedy by brothers Karel and Josef Čapek, it follows a drifter narrator who falls asleep in a forest and dreams of anthropomorphized insects, in an allegory of life after the First World War. Švankmajer’s adaptation is a metatextual narrative about an amateur staging of the play, blended with the process of making the film itself.
