Presentation and journey through the work and references of filmmakers Ladislas Starewitch, Jan Svankmajer and the Brothers Quay, to trace the lines of intersection and convergence between their imaginaries. Although these are three very personal universes of great richness and multiple nuances, they often share an atmosphere or reference points or sinister, surreal, humorous poetics in which the fairy tale coexists with the cabinet of curiosities, Renaissance science, magical illusions and a certain intellectual, aesthetic and literary legacy originating from the Eastern Europe of the early 20th century.
