Kooky

Kooky by Jan Sverak

Kooky is both an inventive, thrilling family adventure and a celebration of the childhood imagination.

Highly inventive and visually rich the film uses live action and puppet characters. When asthmatic, six-year-old Ondra is forced to throw away his scruffy, sawdust-stuffed old teddy bear named KOOKY, he prays for the safe return of his furry friend. Soon afterwards, way across town, Kooky is about to be crushed in a rubbish dump when he suddenly comes to life. This movie is about the story of KOOKY making his escape into a mysterious forest. The naive, cuddly Kooky needs help to survive amongst the rough-and-ready creatures of the forest and he finds it when he meets the crotchety forest guardian HERGOT. Hergot is in charge of watching over the forest, but he has his enemies too – the malevolent NIGHTSHADE plans to take over the forest, by proving that the short-sighted but good-hearted Hergot is not up to the job of guardian. Using puppetry and live action, Kooky is both an inventive, thrilling family adventure and a celebration of the childhood imagination.
