Event Details

“One of the great outpourings of cinematic invention in an age of over-all artistic liberation.” – Richard Brody, The New Yorker

Daisies is an aesthetically and politically adventurous film that’s widely considered one of the great works of feminist cinema.

It’s a satirical, wild and irreverent story of teenage rebellion. Two young women rebel against a degenerate and oppressive society, attacking symbols of wealth and bourgeois culture. A riotous, punk-rock poem of a film that is both hilarious and mind-warpingly innovative, Daisies was banned in native Czechoslovakia and director Vera Chytilová was forbidden to work until 1975.

 

Screening is subtitled (in English).
