Legendary collage animator Lawrence Jordan presents his most recent film, a tribute to Max Ernst and Luis Buñuel, alongside a selection from his entire career, followed by a live film performance with John Davis.

“I have always wanted to show the ‘impossible’ in my films, and to astonish the viewer. . . . I often operate on freely associated series of images, finding the trail as I go, not plotting it, though some of the films are meticulously scripted. When I astonish myself, I put it in the film. When I don’t, I leave it out.” - Lawrence Jordan
