In cooperation with the National Film Archive Prague and on the occasion of the Month of the Czech and Slovak Cultural Intercommunity, BAB introduces a collection of uknown valuable films related to the lecture and discussion led with the film histiorian Michaela Mertová from NFA in Prague.
The director and animator Hermína Týrlová (1900-1993) was one of the most significant personalities in the Czech animation in the second half of the 20th century. After her pioneer beginnings in the interwar period and already at the beginning of the 40-ties of the 20th century, she markedly contributed to building the basis of the Czech postwar animation.
Thanks to her interest in emotional impact of the puppet material and looking-alive objects as an important tool of artistic expression, Hermína Týrlová was given a special place in the world of animation. The state film monopoly provided Hermína Týrlova financial and technical background needed for her works that were focused on a children´s viewer as well as good conditions needed for technological experiments.
M. Mertová´s lecture brings back the key films and some trailors of almost uknown films made by H. Týrlová that did not get recognition from the audience and for their authors in the time of their occurance.
Films used by the lecture:
Kalamajka (direction: H. Týrlová, 1957)
Deň odplaty / Revenge Day (direction: H. Týrlová, 1960)
Nočná romanca / Night Romance (direction: H. Týrlová, 1949)
