Incorrectly Drawn Hen

Jiří Brdečka | Czechoslovakia | 1963 | 13 min

During her career, Libuše Čihařová animated a number of famous and successful films. One of the films, directed by the legendary Czech filmmaker Jiří Brdečka, celebrates the power of fantasy and defends modern art. The animators who brought the drawings to life had to cope with two artistic styles. Zdenek Seydl designed the hen and Jaroslav Malák other characters and the setting.

The Princess Who Saw Everything

Libuše Čihařová | Czechoslovakia | 1984 | 11 min | CS

This adaptation of a story by the Grimm brothers was again made in collaboration with Olga Čechová. The modern visual style is an excellent fit for the story, which – a bit unusually for a fairy-tale princess – emphasizes erudition and independence. The princess’ suitor eventually tricks her with the help of magic.

About Malenka

Libuše Čihařová | Czechoslovakia | 1988 | 13 min | CS

In 1988, the director once again collaborated with graphic artist Jitka Valterová and the resulting film is an extraordinary adaptation of one of Andersen’s fairy tales. The children may find the story accompanied by dramatic music a bit dark, but the overall style the authors used to visualize the fantastic story is almost reminiscent of the poetics of Japanese anime in its extraordinariness.
