    A rather beautiful, simple and luminous animated film, whose intentions are original yet unassuming, with a view to opening up the subject-matter to the widest audience possible.

    Animation is creation. I don’t need fantastic stories; life is so interesting that you can just observe it and pick up little bits to put them into a new context. What a joy it is to give life to your characters! Making movies is my love, my addiction, my life.

    Michaela Pavlátová was born in 1961 in Czech Republic. She studied animation at VSUP, Academy of Arts Architecture and Design in Prague. As an animation film director, her films have received numerous awards at international film festivals, including an Oscar nomination and a Golden Bear. Her project MY SUNNY MAAD was selected for the Venice Gap-financing Market 2019. That same animation movie was selected at Annecy International Animation FF 2021 and won the Jury Prize.
