SYNOPSIS

'When Alice follows the White Rabbit into Wonderland, so begins this dream expedition into the astonishing landscape of childhood, through many dangerous adventures, and ultimately to Alice's trial before the King and Queen of Hearts. Jan Švankmajer has created a masterpiece of cinema, a strikingly original interpretation of Lewis Carroll's classic tale. Švankmajer's Alice remains true to the absurdity of Carroll's original, but bears the stamp of his own distinctive style and obsessions. Combining techniques of animation and live action, he gives a new and fascinating dimension to the classic tale of childhood fantasies.' Siren Visual Entertainment
