Description: Based loosely on West African tree of life myths and Yoruba legend, Iwa is the storyline of a laborer in the Yoruba town of the gods, 'Ikole Orun' whose life turns out be one of in adverted defiance. While working on a everyday task, building the city, the laborer becomes distracted, leading to the death of two of his co workers. He is branded by his creator, banished from 'Ikole Orun,' and forced to create a life anew on earth, 'Ife.' His encounter with a solitary tree of life in Ife forces the laborer to create a hard decision.

Description: Featuring all 26 entries in the official filmography, this is the world's first finished DVD edition of the short movies by the legendary Czech Surrealist filmmaker-animator Jan Švankmajer. Technically and conceptually astonishing in their own right, these movies are also as remarkable for their philosophical consistency as for their frequently mind-boggling imagery. This pack also contains a premium short, Johanes Doktor Faust (1958), the longer slash of 'The Cabinet of Jan Švankmajer' with a fresh introduction by the Quay Brothers, the documentary Les Chimeres des Švankmajer (2001), interviews with Jan and Eva Švankmajer and examples of their work in another media. There's also a possibility to see some Švankmajer unique effects, created when he was banned from directing his own films.
Description: Filtering a large range of literary, musical, cinematic and philosophical influences through their own utterly distinctive sensibility, every Quay movie is a dialogue-free and usually non-narrative experience, riveting the attention through hypnotic control of décor, melody and movement. With a grasp of the uncanny that rivals Luis Buñuel and Lewis Carroll, their movies evoke half-remembered dreams and long-suppressed childhood memories, fascinating and deeply unsettling by turns. This colection is a selection of 13 short films.
