Legendary Surrealist director Jan Svankmajer on Puppets

This interview should be of interest to Ligottians.
He is also crowdfunding his last film, Insects, a loose adaptation of a play by the Čapek brothers if any of you are interested in donating.

This is my life. This is my damnation. This is my only regret--that I ever was born.

My pleasure, Mr. Cardin. I look forward to reading To Rouse Leviathan.

Svankmajer's son is also a great guy. He allowed me to post a Surrealist Tract Against Donald Trump on his Facebook page.

Re: Legendary Surrealist director Jan Svankmajer on Puppets

I watched this one after reading The Tragical Comedy or Comical Tragedy of Mr. Punch by Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean:

Jan Svankmajer - Punch And Judy - vidéo Dailymotion

Your fall should be like the fall of mountains. But I was before mountains. I was in the beginning, and shall be forever. The first and the last. The world come full circle. I am not the wheel. I am the hand that turns the wheel. I am Time, the Destroyer. I was the wind and the stars before this. Before planets. Before heaven and hell. And when all is done, I will be wind again, to blow this world as dust back into endless space. To me the coming and going of Man is as nothing.
