Darkness Light Darkness

A corporeal and Kafkaesque claymation from Czech surrealist Jan Svankmajer released 1990 and immediately got spotlights and awarded in multiple film festivals including Berlinale and Cracow Film Festival

Two hands find each other in a room and begin molding themselves into a human figure. Different body parts come knocking, some more insistently than others, until the small space is stuffed with the finished man. Whether viewed as a witty riff on the Golem story or an allegory of Svankmajer’s own claustrophobia in communist Czechoslovakia, Darkness Light Darkness is vivid and very funny.
