Part of the Screening Europe Season
After a five-year break from filmmaking, surrealist Jan Svankmajer ventured into pseudo-autobiographical territory with this so-called 'psychoanalytical comedy'.
Eugene falls in love with a woman from his dreams, whose name – starting with 'E' – eludes him upon waking. He approaches a therapist for help and together their investigations begin to unpick what it is that's locked deep in Eugene's subconscious.
Combining live-action backdrops with photo cut-outs of the actors, Surviving Life delves into a world where reality is as obscure as the dreams it presents.
The screening will be introduced by Dr David Sorfa.
