Back in the days of the Habsburg Monarchy, a simple but clever rustic hulk, Martin Krpan, smuggles “English salt” inland from the sea. One day, he bumps into the Emperor on a snowy path and demonstrates his fantastic strength to His Majesty. Soon after, Vienna is attacked by a terrifying giant called Brdaus, who slays all the imperial heroes. The Emperor calls upon Martin as a last resort to save his Empire. Martin defeats the fiend in a duel and, as a reward, receives a license to legally transport his “English salt”.
Nejc Saje (1976) is photographer by profession and works in the fields of photography, cinema, animation, video, and theatre. Martin Krpan is his second animated film after his award-winning debut Courtyard.
