A Star From the Start (1945-51) Synopsis

This program of six witty, offbeat short animations, culled from the early part of Trnka’s career, demonstrates his mastery of multiple forms of animation, such as hand-drawn images, collage effects, and stop-motion puppets. The program includes: Grandpa Planted a Beet (1945), Trnka’s first film; The Animals and the Brigands (1946), a Cannes prize-winning folktale; Springman and the SS (1946), a Max Fleischer–like anti-Nazi lampoon; The Gift (1946), a surrealist mini-masterwork; Romance with Double Bass (1949), an adaptation of a Chekov short story; and The Golden Fish (1951), a wryly humorous fairy tale.
