‘Magic Mountain’ Director Anca Damian on Anti-communist Dissident, Mountain Climber Adam Jacek Winkler

Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic — Anca Damian’s “Magic Mountain,” a riot of interwoven animation, archival images, handmade art and prickly politics, is likely the only Karlovy Vary Film Festival competition contender that required three studios to complete.

“This is what is extraordinary in animation,” says the writer/helmer/producer. “You can have a kind of surreality using real elements, mixing them with drawings, and create a world.”

Damian’s past animated work in 2011’s investigative account “Crulic – The Path to Beyond” made the rounds of some 150 fests, portraying the Kafkaesque fate of a Romanian man caught in immigration limbo abroad with raw, naive-style images and ironic narration.

This time around, the Romanian/French/Polish co-production employs French thesps contributing voice-over talents to a more varied, richer mix of media, styles and effects, created with the help of Theodore Ushev and Tomek Ducki, many of which evolved along the way during shooting, »
