Revered as the pioneer of a remarkable genre of animation that utilizes puppets and stop-motion photography, the Czech filmmaker Jirí Trnka conveys the drama and psychology of his characters through his figures’ body language, expressive lighting, and camera movement. We are proud to present a selection of the master’s best films.
