About Film: NFTS Painted Skies presents The Fabulous Baron Munchausen (1962)

The Fabulous Baron Munchausen (1962)

Dir. Karel Zeman | Czech with English subtitles | 83 minutes

Digital Restoration provided by the Karel Zeman Museum

Introduction by Professor Paul Wells

This slice of storybook surrealism shows the wild imagination of Karel Zeman (known as the Czech Méliès) mixing matte paintings, tinting, animated compositions, and more for this dizzying tall tale. After astronaut Tony (Rudolf Jelínek) encounters the boastful Baron Munchausen (Miloš Kopecký) on the moon, they quickly fall into a breath-taking adventure involving an imprisoned Princess and a raging sea monster. The Fabulous Baron Munchausen (1962) emulates the cross-hatched illustrations of Gustave Doré, crafting some of the most stunning and magical sequences on film in this delightful romp.

Painted Skies is a film season celebrating fake backgrounds, spotlighting films with innovative set design that reminds us of their artificiality. This season was curated by Bruno Savill De Jong as part of the National Film and Television School (NFTS). Find more info at their website for Painted Skies and follow them on Instagram (@paintedsky_films) and Twitter (@paintedskyfilm).

Doors open at 18.30, for a 19.30 start.

Refreshments will be available in our licensed cafe/bar.
