The Emperor's Nightingale, 1949

Updated: Sep 3, 2023

This masterpiece full feature film from Jirí Trnka combines live action with stop motion to tell the adaptation fairy tale of 'The Nightingale' by Hans Christian Andersen. It's truly a fine example piece showcasing Trnka's talent as a storyteller, animator, and master puppet maker and one that makes me tear up every time I watch this film.
