24 Czech and Polish Animators

For those film lovers familiar with independent animation, the words “Czech & Polish animation” might evoke images of animated puppet films rich in artistry, atmosphere, absurdity and profundity. Curator Miriam Harris traveled to Czech Republic and Poland to garner works from the veterans, the mid-careerists and the emerging forces. Her selected screening offers a refreshing alternative to English-speaking perspectives while drawing on qualities such as absurdity, black humour, philosophical speculation and romanticism.
