Directed by Jan Švankmajer
Czech Republic, 2017


An adaptation of The Insect Play – an early work from Czech science fiction writer Karel Capek which puts human characteristics into insects and insect characteristics into humans for an effect that will surely call to mind Franz Kafka’s Metamorphosis.
