Exhibition: The Legend of Goldhorn

When: 31 October - 25 November 2023

Location: HUB.Theater Kerkrade

Admission: Free

This exhibition explains the story behind the film, The Legend of Goldhorn, which is being screened during the featival. The delightful original drawings which were used for this animation film will be on display at the HUB Kerkrade library. Not only will you be able to admire them, with the help of augmented reality you can also bring some of these drawings to life on your mobile or tablet.


The drawings for this animation film were made by the Slovenian Lea Vučko, who also directed this film. The Legend of Goldhorn is her debut film and won the VESNA, the Slovenian award for the best animation film in 2022 and the DSAF prize for the best visual design, awarded by the Slovenian association of animation film.

Mythical past

The legend Goldhorn is based on a Slovenian folk tale which takes place in the mountains. The story is all about love, greed and our relationship with each other and our environment. The story takes place in the so-called mythical past, a time when humans were connected with the laws of nature. The supernatural beings had a connection with everyday life and were worshipped like gods. This is reflected in the colour scheme of the drawings. The colours are vibrant and reflect the ultraviolet and infrared radiation that surrounds us, but is invisible to the human eye. The vibrancy of the colours is in stark contrast to the dark story.

The exhibition can be seen during the library’s normal opening times and when HUB is open for a theatre performance:

Monday 1 pm to 6 pm
Tuesday and Wednesday 10 am to 6 pm
Thursday and Friday 10 am to 9 pm
Saturday 10 am to 5 pm
