"The Emperor's Nightingale - Císařův slavík (dir. Jiří Trnka, 1948, 72 minutes, 35mm)"

Co-presented with The Melbourne Cinémathèque

In legendary Czech puppet animator Jiří Trnka's sublime adaptation of the famous Hans Christian Andersen fairytale The Nightingale, the story occurs as a fever dream of a well-to-do yet sickly young boy imprisoned in his home.

To be preceded by two of Trnka's remarkable late short works: an eerie, dystopian depiction of alternative parenting practices in Cybernetic Grandma (Kybernetická babička, 1962, 29 minutes) and a bawdy Decameron adaptation, The Archangel Gabriel and Mrs. Goose (Archanděl Gabriel a paní Husa, 1964, 29 minutes).

All three films will screen on 35mm, courtesy of Národní filmový archiv.

Screening Saturday, May 25, 12.30pm, at ACMI Cinemas, recommended for ages 8+
