from the “Paint me a fairy-tale…” series
An auteur animated film for children in the Paint me a fairy tale… series, produced in the oil-paint-on canvas-animation technique directly under the camera, is a second film and the first screen adaptation of this tale by Andersen, just like the previously-made The Flax.
A film adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s tale. It is a funny, but also true story of a certain rumour. This subject has always been topical, especially now, in the era of audio-visual media, tabloids and the Internet. The story is set in the suburbs of a certain Hen Town. It is centred on a growing rumour about a respectable hen who has lost one small feather. The news, passed on from lips to lips, or, to be precise, from beak to beak, is transformed into a “dramatic” tale of five hens who died of love to a cock. The behaviour of the poultry and other birds is a caricature of human reactions and emotions caused by spreading rumours.
Film from the “Fourteen Tales from Lailonia Kingdom by Leszek Kołakowski” series, based on the philosophical parables „Tales from Lailonia Kingdom for the Big and
Small” by Leszek Kołakowski.
Film co-financed by Polish Film Institute and Wielkopolski Fundusz Filmowy.
