Outdoor Screening #Chill
Where: Scout Institute (Staroměstské náměstí 4, Prague 1)
When: 9 June 2019 22:00
Film screening under the stars in the galleries of the Scout Institute. The Czech scouting organization has created an exceptional oasis of calm in the middle of Prague’s busy tourist center – a great place for meetups, education, and culture, and well worth the visit.
To be seen:
Case for a Rookie Hangman (Případ pro začínajícího kata) (Pavel Juráček, 1969)
Case for a Rookie Hangman is a Czech drama film directed by Pavel Juráček and belongs to the Czech New Wave. The movie can be classified as a surrealistor absurdist satire, and it is based loosely on the third book of Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift, but the story is transferred to an early 20th-century world in decay. The movie shows also the influence of Franz Kafka and Lewis Carroll (Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland). The satire is aimed at the Czechoslovakian society, and the movie was soon banned after its release in 1970.
Meet, Watch and Chill!
