Bristol Festival of Puppetry 2017

The Cabinet of Curiosities 18

The Cabinet of Curiosities
‘Keha Mälu’ Director: Ülo Pikkov [Nukufilm]

A surreal selection of dark visions, ghostly stories and cautionary tales from the masters of European puppet animation including Jan Švankmajer, Břetislav Pojar and Jiří Barta. This retrospective will send you on a journey with some of central Europe’s most influential puppet filmmakers – and will also send a shiver down your spine.

Not suitable for children.
