Vēra Chytilová | Czechoslovakia | 1966 | 1hr 13min | Czech with English subtitles | 15
Doors 7.30pm, 7.45pm film start. The Haining House, Selkirk, TD7 5AA

Join us in the magnificent setting of The Haining House for a rare screening of Věra Chytilová’s classic of surrealist cinema that is perhaps also the most adventurous and anarchic Czech movie of the 1960s.

‘Two young women, both named Marie, revolt against a degenerate, decayed and oppressive society, attacking symbols of wealth and bourgeois culture. Defiant feminist statement? Nihilistic, avant-garde comedy? It remains a cinematic enigma and its influence is still felt today – from the extreme Baise-Moi to the mainstream Thelma & Louise and in the films of (amongst others) Jacques Rivette, Bertrand Blier, Catherine Breillat and Gregg Araki.

A riotous, punk-rock poem of a film that is both hilarious and mind-warpingly innovative, Daisies continues to provoke, stimulate and entertain.’ – Second Run DVD

Programmed by Moving Image Makers Collective, as part of YES Arts Festival and Scalarama. Check out MIMC’s Put Down the Remote exhibition from Thur 14 – Sun 17 September #BTCfeministfilmclub
