Pearls of Czech New Wave Cinema, GFT


Films of the Czech NEW Wave


Although not as well known as other cinematic New Waves, the films of the Czech New Wave feature some of the most wildly inventive and progressive experiments in film. Working under an op- pressive communist regime, these filmmakers painted expressionistic portraits of their lives, quietly subversive and satirical, liberating them from a stifling society. The results are some of the most interesting works in all of cinema’s history.

For this season, GFT brings you new restorations of two landmark films from the late Vera Chytilová (who sadly passed away last year), along with early works from Jirí Menzel and Milos Forman.
