Still image from the film Surviving Life

Evžen is a man who has fallen in love with his dreams, a man who seeks to abandon his waking life and make his dreams his “first life.” In them, he meets a woman in a red dress whose name changes each time he falls asleep. Apples roll through the background and giant snakes peek out of the windows. Evžen prefers this reality, but has trouble holding onto it, and so he tries various means to conjure the dream at will. Combining live action and cut-paper animation, the film shows what happens when the lines between dream and reality fall away.
