Jirˇí Barta

Born in 1948, Jirˇí Barta graduated from Applied Arts and Crafts in Prague. He joins the studio of his master, Jirˇí Trnka, before joining the Kratky Film studio in 1978. After several animated short films with puppets (including Riddles for a candy - Hádanky za bonbón, 1978 and The Vanished World of Gloves - Zaniklý sveˇt rukavic, 1982), he directs the medium-length film The Pied Piper (Krysarˇ, 1986), inspired by the legend of the Pied Piper of Hammelin. The fall of the communist era in 1989 interrupts Golem, his current production. After having animated several episodes of The Mole by Zdeneˇk Miler, aged 61, he puts together the necessary funds in 2009 to direct his first full-legth feature film, In the Attic.
