From June 3 through July 4, the Gene Siskel Film Center presents "The Puppet Master: The Complete Jiří Trnka," the Comeback Company's touring program of the first complete American retrospective of Czech animation master Jiří Trnka (1912-1969). The ten programs in the retrospective contain Trnka's six features and eighteen shorts, including new digital restorations of THE CZECH YEAR and OLD CZECH LEGENDS, newly translated subtitles for eleven films, and archival 35mm prints of the two films widely considered Trnka's finest, THE EMPEROR'S NIGHTINGALE and A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM.
