With Jirí Kochman, Ondrej Maly

Sunday, March 15, 5:00 pm

Wednesday, March 18, 6:00 pm

A would-be poet takes to tne soapbox in a crowded hangout for the ill-timed performance that bookends this comedy-drama set one night in atmospheric Pilsen. Director Samir takes a bravura approach to storytelling with a film shot almost entirely in a single take.

2014, Miroslav Krobot, Czech Republic, 102 min.

With Tatiana Vilhelmová

Sunday, March 22, 7:00 pm

Thursday, March 26, 8:15 pm

A deep vein of ironic humor underlies this character study of a Czech village. Bartender Maruna (Vilhelmová) is young enough to be the resident hot babe but old enough to hear the ticking of her biological clock, as life takes its toll on the hamlet’s citizens in the form of murder and other mishaps.

In Czech and German with English subtitles.
