Lions of Czech Film Series: Bear with Us

Date: 11 December 2019 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM, Venue: Avalon Theatre

The Avalon Theatre presents the film "Bear with Us" (Chata na prodej) as part of the ongoing Lions of Czech Film Series. A family decides to sell their lovely cottage, as none of them has visited it for some time. Because it holds so many nostalgic memories, the mother suggests they all spend one last day there before the sale takes place. During their time together, issues among the members of the family inevitably come out into the open. BEAR WITH US takes an agreeably detached view of the Czech phenomenon of weekending in the country. (Lenka Tyrpáková, KVIFF)

Directed by Tomáš Pavlíček, 2018, 77 min., in Czech with English subtitles
