Fri, 8/25, 7:00pm – TIGER THEORY (2016) One of the year’s most successful Czech films, this tragicomedy follows 60-year-old Jan who comes to a fateful decision to escape his every-day life following the voluntary death of his father-in-law. Directed by Radek Bajgar. 101 min.

Fri, 8/25, 9:30pm – THE NOONDAY WITCH (2016) Combining stunning cinematography with elegant storytelling, this chilling yet beautiful narrative follows Eliska and her eight-year-old daughter who move to a remote country house to begin a new life together only to be haunted by a terrifying mythical creature. Directed by Jiří Sádek. 90 min.

Sat, 8/26, 5:15pm – LITTLE FROM THE FISH SHOP (2015) Everyone’s familiar with Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid, the story of a love capable of forgiving even the greatest betrayal. In Jan Balej’s  film—a work filled with wonderful animation and expressive puppet designs—the fairy-tale romance is replaced with a bleak portrayal of life in a city harbor, yet its enduring message remains. Directed by Jan Balej. 71 min. Czech Republic/France/Slovakia. English/Czech/French with English subtitles.

Sat, 8/26, 7:15pm – I, OLGA HEPNAROVA (2016) Winner of numerous awards including Czech Lions for Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress, this acclaimed art film delves into the story of Olga Hepnarová, the last person to be executed in the Czech Republic, who killed eight people with a truck in 1973. Directed by Tomáš Weinreb, Petr Kazda. 105 min. Czech Republic/Poland/France/Slovakia. Czech with English subtitles. 

Sun, 8/27, 1:15pm – THE TEACHER (2016) Since the arrival of teacher Mariá Drazdechová to a suburban school in Bratislava, life has turned upside down both the students and parents. Despite Mariá’s power in the Communist Party, the town bands together to take action in this new comedy drama that was selected for inclusion in MSPIFF 2017, and stars Zuzana Mauéry in a role that won her Best Actress at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. Directed by Jan Hřebejk. 102 min. Slovakia/Czech Republic. Czech with English subtitles.

Sun, 8/27, 4:00pm – THE SNAKE BROTHERS (2015) In this seriocomic story rife with rough humor and a distinctly sardonic tone, the relationship between two ragged thirty-something siblings (played by real-life brothers) is put to the test. Directed by Jan Prušinovský. 111 min. Czech Republic. Czech/English/ German with English subtitles.
