We would like to invite to our special film evening that will take place on Tuesday, April 20, 7:30 pm ET.  Our online program will feature a documentary film about one of the most internationally acclaimed Czech filmmakers Karel Zeman and Q&A session with his daughter Ludmila Zeman and granddaughter Linda Zeman Spálený, moderated by Ambassador Bořek Lizec.

Film Adventurer Karel Zeman (2015) is a biographical film that looks back at the life, work

and significance of a genius of world cinema. Featuring interviews with contemporary filmmakers, including Tim Burton and Terry Gilliam, we discover why his films are still relevant and in many ways unsurpassed. Today’s film students attempt to recreate several famous trick scenes from his films.

Ludmila Zeman is an Oscar-nominated Czech-Canadian filmmaker and illustrator, recipient of the Governor General’s Literary Award – Best Illustration, Karel Zeman’s daughter and close colleague.

Linda Zeman Spálený is a granddaughter of Karel Zeman, co-author of several projects together with her mother Ludmila Zeman. Together with her mother, she has been a major driving force behind the creation and success of the Karel Zeman Museum in Prague.

Before computers, Karel Zeman took us to prehistory, deep under the sea as well as to the moon. We hope that you will accept our invitation and enjoy this unique opportunity to take a look behind the scenes of the special effects in his legendary films.

For more information, please, see the enclosed invitation.
