Five Brave Men from FAMU
An exhibition presenting work by five Czech film directors, artists and animators: Michal Zabka, Vaclav Svankmajer, Noro Drziak, Jan Bubenicek and David Sukup. All graduates of the Film and TV School of the Academy of the Performing Arts in Prague (FAMU), they share the heritage of the great Czech animation school as represented by the works of Karel Zeman, Jiri Trnka, Jan Svankmajer as well as having the great animator Bretislav Pojar as their teacher. Already acclaimed for their work while at FAMU, all five filmmakers are now working on their highly anticipated first feature length films. Photographs from their films, puppets, props, designs and story-boards document their filmmaking processes and illustrate their highly individual work. Curated by Zuzana Povysilova
The exhibition is complemented by screenings of their films at the Ciné Lumière on 14, 18 and 20 April.
