The purpose of the full-length animated film In the Attic: Who Has a Birtday Today? says the director Jiří Barta, is to evoke a sense of creative imagination with the help of improvised games that we all surely knew as children. We have shown how every-day objects can magically transform themselves - a children‘s room becomes a battle field, a spaceship, or a jungle. In our fairy tale an old stove can become a steam locomotive, icebreaker, or helicopter. We think that a full-length film for children can enchant with its simplicity, naiveté and unfettered childlike imagination.
