Enjoy an afternoon with the family watching the Czech classic animated films of Zdeněk Miler, a renowned Czech animator, who created Krtek (Little Mole) in the 1950s. The mole became the centerpiece of more than 50 episodes over the next 40 years. Music plays an important role since the characters almost never utter more than emotional sounds; therefore, the film speaks a universal language. Three films will be shown: THE LITTLE MOLE IN THE CITY, THE LITTLE MOLE AND THE DUCKLINGS and THE LITTLE MOLE AND THE ROBOT (Czech Republic, 45 min.). The Little Mole in the City follows the adventures of the famous Czech mole Krtek and his sidekicks hedgehog and rabbit as they head to the city after their home, the forest, has been taken over by industrialization. Illustrated and animated by Zdeněk Miler. Directed by Kenn Navarro. Produced by Mondo Media.
