AFI EU Film Showcase: Ice Mother

Date: 09 December 2017 11:00 AM - 12 December 2017 5:15 PM, Venue: AFI Silver Theatre

AFI Silver Theatre and Cultural Center will screen Bohdan Sláma's "Ice Mother" (Bába z Ledu) on December 9, 11, and 12, as part of the AFI European Union Film Showcase. The film is the 2018 Oscar® Selection representing the Czech Republic.

Bohdan Sláma's (THE COUNTRY TEACHER, THE WILD BEES) romantic dramedy stars Slovak actress Zuzana Krónerová (PUPENDO, THE WILD BEES) as Hanna, a 67-year-old widow who finds new love — and a new hobby — as part of an ice-swimming team. After rescuing the eccentric Broňa (Pavel Nový, CONSPIRATORS OF PLEASURE, LITTLE OTIK) from Prague's freezing Vltava River, Hanna has a new lease on life — one that extends beyond caring for her two needy sons and their wives. Broňa is a gruff free spirit with a past, who lives in a camper van with chickens, and clashes with Hanna's well-to-do family. Ice Mother is a lovingly told and unsentimental story of one woman's long-overdue journey to self-realization.
