Czech That Film: WINTER FLIES
April 06 only
A rebellious teenager and his dorky, BB-gun-toting sidekick run away through the Czech countryside in a stolen Audi. Along the way, they pick up a dog and a pretty female hitchhiker as they try to elude the police. An interrogation of tall tales of exploits is contrasted against awkwardness, innocence, and adulthood. This coming-of-age road movie tells a story of adolescent friendship and the irrepressible desire to experience something even if one doesn’t know exactly what that something is – a sense of unbridled freedom. The film received the Best Director award at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival and was The Czech Republic’s Foreign Language Oscar Submission.
Directed by Olmo Omerzu. Starring Tomás Mrvík, Jan Frantisek Uher, and Eliska Krenková. 85 min. English subtitles.
