THE COMPLETE JIŘÍ TRNKA
Starting April 20, 2018
BAYAYA (Bajaja, 1950)
Bajaja, 1950, 75m, Czechoslovakia
Czech with English subtitles
Based on a pair of Czech fables, this rousing, medieval-set adventure charts the exploits of a young peasant whose dead mother returns in the form of a white horse, whisking him away on a quest to free her soul from purgatory and save three princesses from a host of hydra-headed dragons. Balancing moments
of atmospheric lyricism with vigorous action sequences, the third feature-length collaboration between Trnka and composer Václav Trojan—who contributes
a stirring, cantata-like score set to text by Surrealist writer Vítězslav Nezval—confirms the pair to be a creative partnership as fruitful as Eisenstein and Prokofiev or Hitchcock and Herrmann.
