StopTrik International Film Festival is dedicated to stop motion techniques of hand-made, spatial animation as puppet film, claymation, object or photography manipulation, animation of loose materials (such as salt, sand etc), pixilation, traditional cut-out and many more. The list of sub-genres could be complemented with such exceptional techniques as animation of lights, fire, yarns, threads. Artists' imagination is limitless and so we can be neither orthodox nor strict while defining the term "stop motion". The ultimate goal of this unique annual gathering is to admire and celebrate artistry of hand-made, spatial animation together with all the other drifters of the surreal, absurd or merry highways who are ready to pursue frame by frame illusion.

The Vanished World of Gloves

Lina Dvoršak


The Vanished World of Gloves/ Zaniklý svět rukavic

Jiří Barta (KF a.s. - Jiří Trnka Studio)

1982, Czechoslavakia, 16'

 Film consists of six animated miniatures sharing common motif of glove. Jiří Barta deconstructs different ways of cienematic expression – from slapstick comedy, through melodrama, totalitarian propaganda, references to work of European classics such as Luis Buñuel or Federico Fellini, finishing with the vision of Armageddon which reminds of John Carpenter’s Escape from New York. The film with its state-of-the-art form and fantasy is a representative of the post-Trnka period of the Czech puppet animation and has been awarded a number of world prizes.

Film je sestavljen iz šestih animiranih miniatur, v katerih se pojavlja motiv rokavice. Jiří Barta razstavi različne načine kinematografskega izražanja - od slapstick komedije, do melodrame, totalitaristične propagande, navezovanja na evropske klasike, kot sta Luis Buñuel ali Federico Fellini, do zaključka z vizijo apokalipse, ki spominja na Pobeg iz New Yorka Johna Carpenterja. Film je s svojo vrhunsko podobo in fantazijo predstavnik obdobja češke lutkovne animacije po Trnki in je prejel številne svetovne nagrade.
