At Siberia Lounge, 2227 St. Claude Ave.
Six folk tales – foundational myths and legends of the Czech people – brought to life in Jiří Trnka’s spectacular, multi-award- winning, feature-length puppet animation, which has recently undergone a glorious, full digital restoration.
The full vocabulary of cinema is deployed, bestowing upon each tale’s telling its own distinct atmosphere, in a virtuoso puppet performance which continues to influence generations of stop-motion animators.
