The Best Puppet Show in Prague

Posted on 6/11/2019 12:00:00 AM in What We're Watching

A note from independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film:

Prague is a city brimming with art forms, old and new. Puppeteer Cristina Pavel brings us to the National Marionette Theater to both watch marionette performances and meet the artists who create the expressive faces. Puppetry in the Czech Republic dates back as far as the 17th century, when it was one of the primary forms of entertainment for the public. To learn about more recent art forms, we meet Jan Zajíček, a street artist, and one of the first graffiti artists to emerge in the Czech Republic (then Czechoslovakia) in the early 1990s. This art form has flourished over the past few decades, and can be found all throughout the city. There are even some walls, like Tesnov, that are specifically open for the public to come and paint on freely. I love the freedom of expression, and the creations that come of it!
