Perhaps you know Povodni mož (the Flood Man), Kralj Matjaž (King Matjaž) and Peter Klepec? What about the young witches of Cipercoper? Otherwise, they live in books and folk tales, but this time they visit us on the big screen.
Peter Peter is a modern story that, in an original way, finds a solution to the plot in the old wisdom of the Slovenian tale about Peter Klepec. Also connecting the present and the past is a fantasy play about the Flood Man, which brightens up boring shopping at the mall. There is no end to witty quips even in the animated story of King Matjaž. Naughty young wizards, following the literary suggestion of Cipercoper, take us on a bumpy road in search of Packa the cat.
Treat yourself with short Slovenian animated films, which will brighten up the evening for adults and children and offer many moments to talk about the selected heroes and their adventures.
