    This family film produced by Total HelpArt - T.H.A. is based on a story by Pavel Šrut, portraying the oddsockeaters, creatures that take our socks and are responsible for humanity having only odd socks, where once there were pairs. A world very similar to our own human world is painted in a gangster tale of two enemy oddsockeater gangs, the conflict of generations, of moralities, though in a gentle and humorous style.

    The film was supported by the State Cinematography Fund, Czech Republic, the Slovak Audiovisual Fund and the Croatian Audiovisual Centre.

    Oddsockeaters was produced by Total HelpArt T.H.A. in coproduction with Czech TV – the Film Centre, PubRes (Slovakia), Alkay Animation Prague and Filmosaurus Rex (Croatia). Falcon is the Czech distributor, while international sales are handled by LEVEL K.
