The CinEast@Mudam event invites you to discover the personality and working methods of the world-renowned Czech surrealist filmmaker Jan Švankmajer. Athanor - The Alchemical Furnace is a documentary portrait of Švankmajer and his film company Athanor. Unlike traditional biopics about the life and work of well-known artists, this is a lively dialogue about Švankmajer´s creative principles that elucidates his creative process “from inside”. It is a thrilling walk through the cabinet of his ideas, themes, and obsessions.
