Krysar - The Pied Piper
CZ, 1986, 35mm, S. DIALOG. / Z. DIALOOG, 53' + 60'
Barta gives a dark twist to the classic folktale of ‘The Pied Piper of Hamelin’: a corrupt and materialistic city distorted into an expressionistic tableau populated by cubist characters. This one-of-a-kind stop motion fairy tale adaptation is hailed as one of the masterpieces of puppet animation.
