Willard Straight Theatre
Central Campus

Ithaca Premiere

1946 - 1954 > Czechoslovakia > Directed by Jiří Trnka
Trnka proved himself to be a master animator from the very beginning, as evidenced by the formally inventive, wittily offbeat works in this program, which includes the filmmaker's earliest experiments in the art form: a modernist tour- de-force of surrealist invention and a 2D/collage combo that's an anti-Nazi lampoon.
