Creature of the Sun

director: Šimona Müllerová
original title: Slnečné Stvorenie
country: Czech Republic
year: 2023
running time: 27 min.


Childlike imagination, naive playfulness and an enchanted view of the world are at the centre of this poetic film. The child protagonists talk about their dreams, fantasies and experiences while touching on metaphysical questions of body and soul, life and death. Magic permeates every frame of this colourful collage.

“I don’t have any imaginary friend because I’m a realist.”
