Invention for Destruction
(Vynález zkázy)
A film by Karel Zeman
Czechoslovakia, 1958

"An imaginative delight, and a stunning personal achievement. Once seen, never forgotten." Senses of Cinema

Presented from new 4K restoration, Karel Zeman's beloved Invention for Destruction comes to Blu-ray and DVD from Second Run.

Breaking new ground in its combination of live action, animation and design, Zeman's film is both a heartfelt homage and love letter to Jules Verne's wonderful tales of science and adventure, and a valiant cry against man's propensity for self-destruction.

A film by Věra Chytilová
Czechoslovakia, 1966

Blu-ray Special Edition

"An amazing explosion of pop-art colours, absurdist humour and proto-feminist politics... It’s a trip, a surreal manifesto, a joy to behold" Sukhdev Sandhu, The Telegraph

Presented from newly remastered materials, Second Run are delighted to present a new Blu-ray Special Edition of one of our most popular titles: the glorious Daisies.

Věra Chytilová’s classic of surrealist cinema is perhaps also one of the most adventurous and anarchic movies of the 1960s. Daisies remains a cinematic enigma. Refreshingly uncompromising, it continues to provoke, stimulate and entertain audiences and its influence is still felt today.
