Kral Lavra / King Lavra (1950), Inspirace / Inspiration (1949) DVD5
Filmmaker Karel Zeman (1910–1989) is considered one of the founders of Czech animated film. His long, inventive career stretched from 1943 until his death in 1989. His interest in animated film was born during his business school days, when he played puppet theater for children in his free time. Soon after, he decided to study at the Art School of Advertising in France, and after graduating he took a job with an advertising studio in Marseilles. His first experience with animated film was making an ad for soup.

This DVD contains two shorts of the Czech animation master Karel Zeman. King Lavra is based on a fairy tale poem by Karel Havlicek Borovsky and closely resembles the antic story of king Midas.
Inspirace is simply amazing short, a love-story set inside a single drop of water, which Zeman animated by heating and bending fragile blown-glass figurines! An unnamed man, implied to be an artist, is looking at a drop of water by his window. In it, he sees the clown Pierrot being spurned by his beloved Columbine, who is riding in a horse-drawn carriage.
