Please join us for a screening of celebrated Czech filmmaker Jan Švankmajer's latest and possibly final film, "Insects". Based on the play Pictures from the Insects' Life by Karel and Josef Čapek, the comedy centers on a group of actors rehearsing the play and acting out their roles as insects. Švankmajer also appears in the film, examining the creative process and dreams. The film premiered at the 2018 International Film Festival in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
