The Emperor's Nightingale, 1949

Updated: Sep 3

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.
