Of Unwanted Things and People

An animated stop-motion film for children based on short stories by Arnošt Goldflam.
Directed by David Súkup [CZ], Ivana Laučíková [SK], Leon Vidmar [SI], Magdalena Osińska [PL].


Three kids sleep over at grandfather’s house, for the first time since grandmother died. They can’t fall asleep and decide to tell each other some of the stories grandmother, a great storyteller, used to tell them. Grandfather helps them to remember how the stories went. Based on Czech author Arnošt Goldflam’s book for children, the film involves a great deal of fantasy and imagination. It is a plea for the art of storytelling, as an ideal mean to accept the sometimes difficult sides of life.

Expected release: 2021

In co-production with Maur Film (CZ), WJTeam/Likaon (PL), ZVVIKS (SL)
