WBEZ film contributor and Facets multimedia founder Milos Stehlik joins Worldview to discuss puppet animation pioneer Jiri Trnka. He is the subject of a retrospective at the Gene Siskel Film Center from June 3 through July 4. The Czech animator, director and illustrator adapted literary works into animated films in the 1940s. Trnka was known as the Walt Disney of Eastern Europe. He worked in Eastern Europe during the Nazi regime. Many of his films have a subversive political context. Milos also reviews “Let the Sunshine In,” a new French film starring Claire Denis about a middle-aged woman navigating sexuality, relationships, and identity.
