Defiance and Compassion: The Films of Věra Chytilová
1 – 17 March 2015

A rebel, feminist and critic of contemporary society: some of the many labels attached to the leading lady of the 1960s Czech New Wave, Věra Chytilová. BFI Southbank in London in collaboration with the Czech Centre and Czech National Film Archive is holding its first ever retrospective of her work in March 2015. An innovative filmmaker, best known for her experimental farce ‘Daisies’, Chytilová’s focus was on women rebelling against male-domination. She bravely and consistently applied her own moral vision to her work and was banned from making films by the Czechoslovak government.
