Czech That Film: THE HASTRMAN
April 06 only
A strange nobleman returns after years abroad to a small Bohemian village to revitalize his family’s property at the beginning of the 19th century. Despite looking like a human, he feels closer to animals. He turns out to be the Hastrman, a water spirit who needs water to sustain his life and gain superhuman strength. In this romantic fantasy, a new love brings Hastrman unexpected happiness and an agonizing dilemma: whether to remain a wild creature or cross the boundaries of intimacy with a human.
