About the Author

Adam Whybray is Lecturer in Film at the University of Suffolk, UK.


The Art of Czech Animation takes an innovative approach in re-examining the pioneering animators Trinka, Barta and Svankmajer. From a psychoanalytic perspective, Whybray explores these animators' works in light of politics and activism, resulting in a fascinating read. -- Dr Caroline Ruddell, Senior Lecturer and Programme Lead in Film Production/Film and TV, Brunel University London, UK
This book provides a compelling investigation into Czech animation history. What makes Whybray's text particularly valuable is the insightful manner in which he unifies significant political and historical events with creative and thematic developments in animation. -- Dr Dan Torre, RMIT University, Australia
