Directed by Jan Nemec | 2005

With Zuzana Stivinova, Jan Budar, Tobias Jirous, Marek Bouda

In one of the most enigmatic films of his career, Nemec uses an abstract structure to create this portrait of revered surrealist painter Toyen, whose ambiguously gendered name was given to her by fellow surrealist Jindrich Styrsky. The film, true to the subject’s own style, is an idiosyncratic vision that revisits the most oppressive period of her life. At that time she lived in Prague and during World War II provided shelter to the artist Jindrich Heisler, who was evading calls to transports. Much like the artists’ lives, the film disintegrates into hallucinatory visions, attempting to reveal the images that fueled Toyen’s imagination through a series of associations.
