Directed by Věra Chytilová (Czechoslovakia, 1966, 74 min.). 35mm. Czech with English subtitles.
One of the most anarchic films of all time, Věra Chytilová’s absurdist farce follows the maniacal exploits of two freethinking young women. Believing the world to be “spoiled,” they embark on a series of pranks in which nothing—food, clothes, men, war—is taken seriously. Presented in a new 35mm print, Daisies is an aesthetically and politically adventurous film that is widely considered one of the great works of feminist cinema.
For this special brunch time screening, there will be mimosas and pastries for sale in Taste Café to enjoy while you watch (no food fights, please)! Co-presented with Women in Film and Video New England.
