DAISIES: 50TH ANNIVERSARY SCREENING
Dir Věra Chytilová.
CZECHOSLOVAKIA 1966. 79 min.
Girls meets Pussy Riot in this anarchic Czech New Wave classic.
Daisies is one of the great works of feminist cinema, and of the Czech New Wave: part sex farce, part art film, part political satire. It’s also one of the most delightfully anarchic, adventurous movies ever made as our heroes, Marie and Marie, set out on a series of pranks that expose a world they believe to have been spoiled. “One of the great outpourings of cinematic invention in an age of over-all artistic liberation” (The New Yorker)
