Cherrry-picked from the Venice, Berlin and Annecy International Film Festivals, including the winner of the 2019 Student Academy Awards, this selection showcases the best Czech animations from FAMU, one of the top international film schools. The animated black comedy Happy End offers an overview of stereotypical Czech characters while The Kite is a touching tale of a boy and his grandfather and Hide N Seek pulls the viewer into the surreal world of the human subconscious. The puppet drama Daughter about a strained father/daughter relationship and the limits of mutual understanding contrasts with the animated documentary Apart dealing with life after the loss of loved ones and the contemplation of womanhood in Woman’s Day while Bloody Fairytales transforms classic tales into an homage to the movies of both Lotte Reiniger and Quentin Tarantino.
