Of Unwanted Things and People

An animated stop-motion film for children based on short stories by Arnošt Goldflam.
Directed by David Súkup [CZ], Patrik Pašš [SK], Leon Vidmar [SI], Jean-Claude Rozec [FR].


Three children spend the night at their grandfather’s, for the first time since their grandmother died. They can’t fall asleep and decide to tell each other some of the stories their grandmother, a great storyteller, used to tell them. The film is based on the children’s book by Czech author Arnošt Goldflam and contains a lot of fantasy and imagination. It is a plea for the art of storytelling as an ideal means of accepting the sometimes difficult sides of life.

Expected release: 2023

In co-production with Maur Film (CZ), ZVVIKS (SL), Vivement Lundi! (FR)
