Jiri Barta's Krysar

Jiri Barta is a Czech animator known primarily for making stop-motion films out of wood. This feature Krysar (more familiar to us Americans as The Pied Piper of Hamelin) was made in 1985. Tragically, after the fall of communism in Czechoslovakia Barta apparently couldn't get any funding for his film work and didn't release any material for 15 years. Even now his output is minimal and geared more towards children.
