Czech New Wave in I-Cinema

Date: 02 May 2020 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM, Venue: ICinema, State Department store, 5th floor

The Embassy of the Czech Republic in Ulaanbaatar cordially invites you to another Czech film afternoon in the I-Cinema, this time dedicated to the legendary director of the Czech New Wave Věra Chytilová (1929 - 2014). On Saturday, May 2, 2020, one of her most important film Daisies (1966) will be screened in Czech original with Mongolian subtitles.

Věra Chytilová is a holder of the Medal of Merit, the Czech Lion for many years of artistic contribution to Czech film, the Crystal Globe of the Karlovy Vary IFF for outstanding artistic contribution to world cinematography and the French distinction of the Order of Arts and Literature.

Film description:
A provocatively moralizing grotesque about two girls who decided to be spoiled because the world around them is like that. An unusual form of narrative, irony and ideas abounding in images that many moralists considered scandalous characterizes Věra Chytilová’s second feature film. In their time Daisies became subject to parliamentary interpelations, later in the time of normalization a deterrent example of "decadent creation" and a carefully guarded safe title. Today, this experimental film is one of the Czech film classics, to which new generations of viewers around the world are returning.
