The Flying Horse


Eduard Kirchberger, a writer in the First Czechoslovak Republic, embodied various personas like Karel Fabián (one of Kirchberger's pseudonyms). His daughters struggle to distinguish real memories from those in his books. Čákanyová blends documentary and animation in a tragicomic portrayal of Kirchberger's attempt to escape history and self.  

'I wanted to visualise his story freely (approach freedom offered by text), avoid the concreteness of reality, given by the descriptive character of technology in both feature and documentary films and make room for some inner imagination.' - Viera ČÁKANYOVÁ
