  • Film Series: Czech Film and the Prague Spring

    Saturday December 6, 2014
    4 pm
    Harold M. Williams Auditorium, Getty Center

    The Czech New Wave of the mid-1960s encompassed a variety of revolutionary styles that influenced directors around the world. Born out of dissent against the Communist regime, the films often sublimate their critiques in absurdity, humor, and pathos. These filmmakers thrived in the momentary creative liberation of the Prague Spring, however each of the films in this series were banned by the Soviet controlled government in Prague.

    Saturday, December 6, 4:00 p.m.: The Ear (1970, 94 min.)
    Saturday, December 6, 7:00 p.m.: Oratorio for Prague (1968, 26 min.) and A Report on the Party and Its Guests (1966, 70 min.)
