Ape (Julie Zammarchi, 1992)
A darkly comic animation, Ape features a grouchy, married couple who battle daily over their nightly dinner - a cooked, whole monkey!

Club of the Discarded (Jiri Barta, 1989)
In this Svankmajer-inspired Czech film, a family of discarded mannequins enjoys a quiet life in an abandoned warehouse until a group of hipster mannequins move in - and ruin the neighborhood!

Derived from a Dostoyevsky story, this Polish film depicts the psychological landscape - fraught with entrapment and violence - between a young woman and an ominous male figure.

Joy Street (Suzan Pitt, 1996)
An ambitious, astonishing story of a woman's journey from suicidal despair to personal renewal, with the help of an unlikely spirit guide.

The Story of the Cat and the Moon (Pedro Serrazina, 1995)
