“To me, animation is like magic…”

“It’s not about making things move, but making things live. This is the domain of magic. And that is what I have always tried to achieve in my films—not just to move objects, but to breathe life into them and explore their inner being.”

Jan Švankmajer
Born September 4, 1934
