Den Čechů v zahraničí 4. únor

V loňském roce ministr zahraničních věcí oslovil v anketě Čechy, kteří žijí v zahraničí, s dotazem na vhodné datum pro „Den Čechů v zahraničí“.

Vítězem ankety se stal 4. únor, hlasovalo pro něj 42 % respondentů. Je to den, kdy si připomínáme odchod Jana Amose Komenského z vlasti v roce 1628.

Short Film Festival University of Wisconsin: "Film as Subversive Art"



The University of Wisconsin Cinematheque is screening four restored short films that were shown in the 1960ies at the Oberhausen Short Film Festival. The title of this program is “Film as Subversive Art”, citing the title of a book by New York film maker Amos Vogel who was curator at the Oberhausen festival at that time. Among the four films is also film Postava k podpírání (A Character in Need of Support) from Czechoslovakia, 1963.


POSTAVA K PODPÍRÁNÍ (Czechoslovakia, 1963, 38 min., Czech with English subtitles).

Directed by Pavel Jurácek, Jan Schmidt.

In this absurdist comedy that heralded the Czech New Wave, a young man rents a cat from a “cat rental company” but when he goes to return the pet, it seems the business never existed. “Forerunner of the Czech thaw, this astonishing, Kafkaesque allegory of Stalinism was the first intimation of things to come. Mordant, sophisticated, and secret, it was insidiously anti- Establishment in its comments on bureaucracy, alienation, and the possible incomprehensibility of all human endeavour" (Amos Vogel).
Restoration courtesy Czech Film Archives.



We would like to invite you and your communities to view this film and the other three at home. Please feel free to distribute this information among your communities. The screening starts on November 19, but the films will be available through December 3.

To receive access and the instructions on how to view the movies at home, send an email to [email protected] and include the word VOGEL in the subject line.

No further message is required or necessary. The cinematheque will reply latest tomorrow morning with instructions on how to view the movies at home.

Czechoslovakia's Velvet Revolution began on this day 31 years ago, November 17, 1989, when police violently quelled a student protest in Prague. Six weeks later Václav Havel was elected president as over four decades of Communist one-party rule finally came to an end. 🇨🇿✌️
