Franz Kafka

Poland, 1991 (MIFF 1992, Animation)

Director: Piotr Dumala

Black and-white images show Kafka's world through the eyes of his childhood and sexual­ly-aware adolescence, up to his creative period (occasionally taking his viewpoint from that of an insect) This is achieved through brilliant draughtsmanship combined with an insightful interpretation of Kafka's psyche A beautiful, evocative animation which can be appreciated even if unfamiliar with Kafka's work (DU)
