ALMA, A Worldly Woman of Indomitable Spirit
SHORT FILM BY HUIQIN AND ANDREJ KAMNIK
The animated film is about an unique artist and writer, a multilingual cosmopolitan and world-traveller, Alma Karlin (1889-1950), about her youth, her stay in Japan and her work and life there. The film summarizes her personality and part of Alma Karlin’s journey around the world, and shows feelings that we did not know about her. On her eight-year journey she circled the globe. Her works reveal an incredibly relevant way of thinking, as she remains a most fascinating figure of the first half of the 20th century.
