SYNOPSIS

'Between 1971 and 1974, Zeman directed a series of shorts for children about the adventures of Sinbad the Sailor, told in exquisitely simple, multicolored cut-out animation that resembles the jungle fantasies of the painter Henri Rousseau. Filled with typically whimsical Zeman touches-a parrot that walks on stilts, a sack that spews an endless mountain of gold coins - these episodes contain some of Zeman's finest work as a storyteller and animator.' - BAMPFA
