The Puppet Master: The Complete Jiří Trnka
Bayaya

December 22 at 2:00
East Building Auditorium

Based on a classic nineteenth-century fairy tale by Božena Němcová, Bayaya is populated with medieval knights and damsels, castles and banquets, dragons and jesters, a dazzling  white stallion, and a surprise jousting tournament. Václav Trojan’s haunting musical score accompanies this enchanting puppet play that is not without a few dark moments. (1950, subtitles, 75 minutes)
