Cecil's Quest by František Skála

Thursday, April 16th, 7pm

Admission is free and is sponsored by CZECH CENTER NEW YORK.


Versatile Czech artist František Skála in his new comic book, Cecil’s Quest, depicts in a unique form of 322 photographs the adventurous wandering of easy-going fellow Cecil, who one summer morning decides to visit his friend – anchoress Lída. He has no idea that he will not return before the land is covered with snow, enriched with experiences and new friendships.

Skála employed a complex technique of taking photographs of puppets in the outdoor environment using the cine-film resembling the process of animated film production, however, without the comfort of studio facilities and technical equipment. It was similar to the classical feature film production except that Skála accomplished the work of the whole film crew by himself. The technical realization of making each scene into a comic book style shot took almost year and was finished with a very sophisticated method of printing.
