Another wonderful foray into fantasy from the Gilliam oeuvre, this time a family-friendly adventure as a young boy accidentally joins a band of time travelling dwarfs, who jump from era to era looking for treasure to steal. It's like a surreal Narnia with small criminals.  Screening as part of our the Creative Genius of Terry Gilliam season.
