Who's Afraid of the Wolf? (2008) 90 min. NY Premiere!
4:30, 6:50*, 9:40pm *Q&A with Maria Procházková

 WHO'S AFRAID OF THE WOLF (KDOPAK BY SE VLKA BÁL) (2008) Directed by Maria Procházková. With Dorotka Dědková, Jitka Čvančarová, Pavel Řezníček, Martin Hofmann. The story of relationship troubles in a young family is portrayed fully through the eyes of a five-year old girl. The child believes that the only explanation of the strange behavior of her mother is that she was abducted by aliens and replaced by one of them. The real reason is the arrival of a former lover who attempts to win the mother over by bringing her back on stage and attempting to revive her operatic career – something she had to give up to bring up her child. Procházková employs elements of animation to depict the girl's imaginative world that also includes her dreams and favorite fairytale of Little Red Riding Hood (hence the title). The film premiered under the slogan "finally a love story you can watch with the kids" at the Berlin IFF this year and follows Procházková's previous successes on the festival circuit with her animated short films and her feature debut SHARK IN THE HEAD that premiered in North America at the Toronto IFF in 2005. New York Premiere!
