ACADEMY OF PERFORMING ARTS IN PRAGUE AND NATIONAL FILM ARCHIVE PRAGUE

The Dodals

Pioneers of Czech Animated Film

Published by Academy of Performing Arts in Prague and National Film Archive Prague
By Eva Strusková.

Featured image, a still from the film <I>Ideas in Search of Light</I> (circa 1937), is reproduced from <I>The Dodals</I>.Today, Czechoslovakia is famous for its unique tradition of animated film. Standing at the very beginning of this tradition is Karel Dodal (1900-1986), who, in collaboration with his wives Hermína Dodalová (née Trlová) and, later, Irena Dodalová (née Leschnerová), made the very first Czech animations, starting with 1927's Felix the Cat Receives a Lesson. The Dodals' marvelous short films range from abstract animations to works made with intimate little sets that vividly convey the ways in which Czechoslovakia's rich culture of puppetry influenced its animation (as instanced by the films of Jan Svankmajer). This attractively designed and abundantly illustrated biography of the Dodals traces their career from its outset, in the 1920s, through their wartime exiles in Paris, Minneapolis (Karel Dodal taught at Minnesota University), New York and Argentina as well as looking at their contemporaries. It includes a DVD featuring 28 restored and digitized films along with documentation on the Dodals themselves.

Featured image, a still from the film Ideas in Search of Light (circa 1937), is reproduced from The Dodals.
