Lunacy (Šílení)

Directed by Jan Švankmajer

Czech Republic

Section: Spotlight (118 min)

North American Premiere

 

For his fifth feature, Czech master Svankmajer, whose intriguing blend of animation and live action has inspired the likes of Tim Burton, the brothers Quay, and Terry Gilliam, once again shocks and delights with an inspired, self-described “philosophical horror film” that borrows liberally from Edgar Allan Poe and the Marquis de Sade.

 

Screenings:

Monday, May 1 at 6:30 pm in Loews Village 01

Thursday, May 4 at 8:00 pm in Loews 34th Street 10

 

 

The Shutka Book of Records

Directed by Aleksandar Manic

Czech Republic / Serbia and Montenegro

Section: Showcase (78 min)

In the Balkan town of Shutka, the Gypsy population is thriving and everyone is considered a champion at something. Manic’s self-assured documentary introduces us to a variety of Shutka’s colorful champions, from the boxer and the lovemaker to the grave robber and the vampire hunter.
