Synopsis:
Karel Zeman has been a profound influence on generations of filmmakers and is now regarded a true master of 20th Century fantasy cinema. 'Invention for Destruction', based on the writings of Jules Verne, is Zeman's most beloved work and the most commercially successful Czech film ever produced. Breaking new ground in combining live-action with animation and design, it visualised a 'steampunk' aesthetic much ahead of its time. A love letter to Verne's tales of science and adventure, the film is also a valiant cry against man's propensity for self-destruction.
