The Water Sprite's Tragedy
Josef Kábrt | Czechoslovakia | 1958 | 4 min
Several brilliant artists took part in making one of the first Czech music videos. Jaroslav Ježek composed the music and duo Jiří Voskovec and Jan Werich came up with the lyrics. Furthermore, Jan Werich also performs the song about a water sprite in modern times. A combination of lively animation and Kábrt’s artistic style, which was very daring for that time, created a humorous and timeless film.
