Description: The Cinefamily presents a screening of this baffling but fascinating 1994 feature-length film version of the famous legend of the man who sold his soul. Director Jan Svankmajer, most know up to that time for his stop-motion short-subjects, combined his usual techniques with live-action, and borrowed bits and pieces from previous texts on the subject: Goethe, Marlowe, etc. The plot, so far as it can be described, has a man wander through a backstage entrance, wherupon he performs/becomes the legendary figure of Faust. The result is unconventional to say the least.
Part of the Cinefamily’s series to devoted to Svankmajer’s work, “The Cabinet of Jan Svankmajer.”
