26th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
Drowning of Marzanna
A perfect marketing film from the 1930s. The short film is an advertisement for Baťa's new products, presented through the traditional celebration of the end of winter – the carrying of a lighted Marzanna into a stream. Plicka once again stylistically outdoes himself in his search for perfection in natural compositions, Moravian costumes, and traditional songs.
Slovak Institute is the partner of the section Translucent Being: Karol Plicka.
