AFI Showcase: Daisies (Sedmikrásky)

The Mutual Inspirations Festival brought two screenings of the 1966 film Sedmikrásky (Daisies) by the sole female director of the Czech New Wave, Věra Chytilová, to the AFI Silver Theater and Cultural Center. The film challenges gender-identity politics through a series of episodes about two young women, who have anarchic fun. The film was banned by the communist government and the director had a very hard time finding work after its release.  Director of the National Film Archive in Prague, Michal Bregant, spoke at the showing on September 24 and discussed Daisies and the Czech New Wave with the members of the audience, many of which were film experts, students of cinematography and Czech compatriots.
