Animation in Croatia: Zagreb School and Beyond

Midhat Ajanovic

This book provides a comprehensive account of Croatian animation history, as well as an analysis of background factors such as political and social circumstances and cultural heritage that influenced the great international success of Croatian animators between the 1960s and 1980s.

The book focuses on the history of the Zagreb School of Animated film, which produced dozens of extremely significant animated films between the 1960s and 1980s, which constituted an important epoch in the development of film animation as an artistic form. It provides a case study of three important films: Dnevnik by Nedeljko Dragic, Don Kihot by Vladimir Kristl and Koncert za masinsku pusku by Dusan Vukotic. The book also covers modern Croatian animation developed after the independence of the country.

This book will be of great interest to academics, students, and professionals working and researching in the field of animation.
