The Good Soldier Švejk, Parts I-III (Osudy dobrého vojáka Švejka I.-III.)
Sunday, September 16, 1 pm
Free

Adapted from the scathingly funny, hugely influential anti-war classic by anarchist writer Jaroslav Hasek, this three-part satirical farce charts the exploits of the eponymous World War I infantryman, whose misadventures continually frustrate his commanding officers—and reveal the absurdity of the entire conflict. Basing his designs on the novel’s original, celebrated illustrations by Josef Lada, Trnka mixes his trademark puppetry with striking cutout-animation sequences to accompany the droll, rambling tales that Svejk spins. The result is a subversive anti-authoritarian statement that captures the novel’s biting wit and irreverent spirit. 1954, Czechoslovakia, DCP, in Czech with English subtitles, 74 minutes. Recommended for 8+.

Preceded by:
The Two Frosts (Dva mrazíci)
Two mischievous frost spirits—voiced by famed comedian Vlasta Burian and author, popular actor, and satirist Jan Werich—make things chilly for a pair of travelers in this wintry comic folktale. 1954, Czechoslovakia, DCP, in Czech with English subtitles, 12 minutes.
