The Czech Surrealist Jan Svankmajer began his career as a puppeteer in Prague. His use of the puppet as a bridge between live action and stop-motion animation dominate his feature films and shorts. This paper explores his interest in the Czech marionette tradition combined with the myth of the Kabbalistic animation of the Golem; both part of the culture and folklore of Prague. For Svankmajer, animation is not merely a special effect but a tangible metaphor for manipulation.
