This animated film tells the story of who Queen Apolejka lives in a high tower. Because there are
seventy-six steps, she dislikes going down to the garden. Then one day she hears someone singing a
song about her. Looking down, Queen Apolejka sees a prince, but when she runs down to the garden
instead of a prince, she sees a donkey next to the well. Based on a Maria Kruger story, Apolejka and
Her Donkey illustrates that charm, modesty, and affirmation of life bring happiness.

In the animated film, “The Lumberjack and the Devil,” the Devil is not as bad as he is made out to be.
Once upon a time, long, long ago, but maybe not so long, in a land far, far away, but maybe not so far, there lived a Woodsman in the last remaining forest where he cared for the last three wolves.  The wolves were stressed by the incessant singing of the birds.  And there was Lumberjack who made birdhouses to pass the time.  And there was a Devil who was supposed to do what devils are supposed to do: tempt others to do evil.
