Director: Ji í Barta
A low-tech toy story that even Pixar would envy.
Something's stirring in the attic. Toys are springing to life and creating a fantastical world from everyday recycled objects. It's all tea-parties and train rides until Buttercup disappears into the Land of Evil and it's up to Teddy, Mr. Handsome and a ball of clay named Schubert to save her.
Following a long tradition of Czech stop-motion, JiÃ…â„¢í Barta's In the Attic bucks the Hollywood trend of high-tech computer-rendered animation, creating a home-made universe brimming with imagination.
“An old stove can become a steam locomotive… old furniture becomes a mountain range, and the space under a tattered canopy becomes a frightening forest.- filmmaker JiÃ…â„¢í Barta
