Abstract

Alice followed the rabbit down the rabbit-hole, without thinking about how she was going to get out… Alice and her Wonderland falls in our audiovisual culture and nobody is thinking that she was going to get out. Alice’s adventures in words and images seem to be a never ending story. Lewis Carroll’s book is one of the most popular texts, which is rewritten in different medias. Literature, movies, computer games are inspirited by his special fairytale dedicated not only for children but for adults, too. This article refers to a few main tendencies in rewriting Alice’s Adventures in audiovisual texts and considers their components. The author compares different images and interpretations in movies by Walt Disney, Nick Willing, Jan Švankmajer and Tim Burton. It may be noted that in author’s opinion computer games: American McGee’s Alice and Alice: Madness Returns not only reconstructed but also intensified a very important relationship between real and virtual life, between sanity and insanity and they do it a better way than the film medium. At the same time high expectations for screening could be inspiring to look for and wait for a new creation of Wonderland in a future cinema.
