Screening of the film “Like Summer Snow”

On 1 March, 2022, The Embassy of Czech Republic in Denmark in cooperation with Husets Biograf arranged another film night. For the March screening, we have chosen a film Like Summer Snow (2021) by director Lubomír Hlavsa.

The film follows the life of Jan Ámos Komenský who became probably the most famous Czech exile due to his beliefs and opinions. Even though he spent most of his life out of his homeland, he managed to get ahead of his time and influence the whole world with his unique ideas noted in nearly 200 writings. The story of Komenský is framed by his interview with a painter Rembrandt who was painting his portrait. Based on their interview we have a chance to see different episodes of Komenský’s life. It shows that Komenský was not only an extremely productive author and great thinker but also a human being from flash and bones, a kind and gracious person tormented by personal tragedies and the precipitous development of European society of that time.
