Exhibition AnimaCZe after 89, prepared by Anifilm International Festival of Animated Films in collaboration with the Aleš South Bohemian Gallery, maps the last 30 years of Czech animation. After the revolutionary year 1989, a new era began in Czech cinema. And animation naturally went through a difficult period when production and distribution environment radically changed. But it also brought new creative possibilities and successes.
AnimaCZe after 89 is the first exhibition recapitulating the last three decades in detail. It recounts the modern milestones of our animation in the form of feature films, successful television series and in particular short and student films. Apart from giving a comprehensive reflection, the exhibition aims to relativise the generally acknowledged notion of “the end of the golden era” and the claim that Czech animation hasn’t achieved any success during the last thirty years.
