„Children's Film Afternoon“ - Hermína Týrlová and Jiří Trnka in Husets Biograf

The Embassy of the Czech Republic in Copenhagen and Husets Biograf cordially invite you to the movie afternoon, which will exceptionally take place on Sunday 6 June 2021 from 2 P.M.

This time, parents, children and old time's movie lovers - heads up! We originally planned to screen films by Zdeněk Miler, who would celebrate his 100th birthday anniversary in 2021, but unfortunately, this was not possible due to Miler's unresolved copyrights.

We have thus arranged three short films from no less important nestors of Czechoslovak animated works - Hermína Týrlová and Jiří Trnka. The collection consists of the following films:

1. Ferda, the Ant in the Foreign Services (H. Týrlová, Czechoslovakia, 1977, 11 min.) // In his adventure, Ferda sets out into the world and tries to help the beetles he meets.

2. The Revolt of the Toys (H. Týrlová, Czechoslovakia, 1947, 14 min.) // A politically tuned grotesque combining puppet animation with actors. The bloated SS man deservedly becomes a punished victim of Master Hoblík's wooden toys.

3. The Cybernetic Grandmother (J. Trnka, Czechoslovakia, 1962, 30 min.) // The story of a little girl who is lost in an over-technological world.

The number of seats will be limited with regard to the requirements for social distancing and hygiene. In following months, it will only possible to purchase a ticket online via billetto.dk.
