November is unofficially my month of animation, and thanks to a tip off from Shelly, Simon and their three small friends from Hackney, we had an outing to see some Pojar films at the Riverside together.
We watch Pojd’te Pane once a week here at home, we take it like a tonic, but seeing the bears in a cinema with a audience of Czech under fives was truly joyous and revealing. We could see the selotape and the fluff here and there and owing to the peals of laughter, I could tell there’s a funny joke about the way that Mister and Mister speak to each other. There were also two other films, both with a message about pets: don’t overfeed your dog, it will turn into an elephant and don’t leave your cats on their own with your paints out. At the end there was a disco in the bar but by then we’d peaked for sure.
