From the box:
Disney + Bunuel = Jan Svankmajer’s Alice
Alice is sitting in her room full of toys reading Lewis Carroll’s story, during which she too is carried off to Wonderland. As she follows the elusive White Rabbit so begins this dream expedition into the landscape of childhood, through many dangerous adventures, and ultimately to her trial before the King and Queen of Hearts.
Jan Svankmajer, the Czech master of animation, has fulfilled a lifetime ambition in this personal interpretation of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. Svankmajer’s Alice remains true to the absurdity of the Carroll’s original, but bears the stamp of his own distinctive style and obsessions. Combining techniques of animation and live action, he gives to this classic tale of childhood fantasies a new and fascinating dimension.
