This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

Maverick sound/art collective 85A ­ currently in production on their own film Chernozem ­ ecstatically present the work of genius Czech filmmaker Jan Svankmajer, in all its demented glory! Each short film will be housed inside specially constructed theatres, coaxing Svankmajer's surreal imagery off the screen and into life in front of you.

Tickets cost £4 for the event on Thursday 23 February and £8/£6 for the event on Friday 24 February. Tickets are available from GFF and the 85A. website: www.85A.org.uk. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: Crossing the Line.
