Jan Švankmajer: The Complete Short Films

One of cinema’s most extraordinary talents, he has had a colossal influence on contemporary animation. His imagery, full of unexpected, outrageous conjunctions, comes from a consistent philosophy of militant Surrealism that underpins his work, in which he remains absolutely committed to the themes of dream, eroticism, revolt and freedom.

Conspirators of Pleasure

Conspirators of Pleasure

Six outwardly average individuals have elaborate fetishes they indulge with surreptitious care. A mousy letter carrier makes dough balls she grotesquely ingests before bed. A shop clerk fixates on a TV news reader while he builds a machine to massage and masturbate him. One of his customers makes an elaborate chicken costume for a voodoo-like scene with a doll resembling his plump neighbor. She, in turn, has a doll that resembles him, which she whips and dominates in an abandoned church. The TV news reader has her own fantasy involving carp. Her husband, who is indifferent to her, steals materials to fashion elaborate artifacts that he rubs, scrapes and rolls across his body.
