Petr Oukropec Martin and the Magical Forest Martin and the Magical Forest CZ, SK, DE 2021, 80’, cs
Martin cannot imagine his life without technology. Once he goes to summer camp in the mountains of Královka region, however, he has to give up the internet. At camp, he spends nights under the open sky, bathes in a stream, eats his meals by a bonfire and makes new friends in the forest kingdom. Meanwhile, the magical creatures around him have big plans for Martin: he must help them save the forest!
Having premiered at the international children and youth film festival in Malmö earlier this year, this children’s adventure film by experienced Czech director and producer Petr Oukropec encourages us to consider environmental issues from a child’s perspective: what can kids do to protect nature? Miraculous things, as it turns out!
