Saturday Morning Cartoons: The Dodals

  • Aurora Picture Show 2442 Bartlett St Houston, TX, 77098 United States (map)

Suplex and Aurora Picture Show are pleased to present a fun-for-all-ages morning of animation shorts by Czech animation pioneers Karel Dodal, Hermina Dodalova, and Irena Dodalova, complete with Czech breakfast bites and an assortment of light refreshments. Inspired by Eva Struskova’s biography “The Dodals”, Suplex will present a select screening of short films that trace the progression of the animator’s work in pre-war Czechoslovakia. Also included in the screening are short films that explore the pioneering spirit of early animation studios. Following the screening, join us for a flipbook activity designed by artist John Forse, where guests color and draw to make their own creativity come alive. All ages are welcome. 

Tickets are free for Aurora members and $10 for non-members. Purchase tickets here.

This event is presented in partnership with Aurora Picture Show and the National Film Archive of Prague. Thank you to our incredible sponsors: Kolache Shoppe, Shipley Do-Nuts, and Amaya Roasting Company.
