Prince Bayaya

Adapted from two fables by Božena Němcová, this was Trnka's first attempt at a full-scale ballad-driven epic, in which a tale of a poor country boy's heroic exploits (defeating dragons and rivals with the help of his mother's ghost in the form of a white horse) combined with greater psychological depth than he had previously attempted. It was visually inspired by Czech painters of the Gothic and Renaissance periods. (Czechoslovakia, 1950, 87 min)
