Jeri Trnka Fans?


Recommended Posts

I have to thank Mark Cousins for bringing notice to the films of the great Jeri Trnka in his documentary on films.


This man did some amazing things on film, and besides "The Hand" which when I first saw it I found chilling, there are many others which deserve reviewing.


Maybe TCM will start showing them as shorts?

I'm one. Terrific stop motion animator. In fact, he's my favorite. Although the atmosphere in most of his films are imbued with the bleak, morbid nihilism characteristic of central European cultures, they also have wit, human insight, and a remarkable amount of scathing political commentary (considering he operated under Communist thumbs). He made the best adaptation so far of Alice in Wonderland. With all the tributes to Ray Harryhausen, I wonder if TCM might not do some kind of survey of stop motion animators from around the world.
