Fyrtøjet

Mihail Badica, Denmark, 1993

35 min.DK/Short fictionPuppet films, Children's films

Mihail Badica, who was born in Rumania, retells Hans Christian Andersen's fairytale in puppet animation. An interesting angle is that the movements of the fingers are made in sign language. The ambition has been to make a film which can be enjoyed by hearing people as an »ordinary« film, and which deaf people can enjoy with a little help from the puppets.
