Daisies 15

Part of Women Aren't Funny
Věra Chytilová, Czechoslovakia, 1966, 76m.

All screenings will be shown with English subtitles (not HOH).

The screening on Sunday 16 June, will be introduced by filmaker and lecturer Pavel Prokopic.

Věra Chytilová’s classic of surrealist cinema is the most adventurous and anarchic Czech movie of the 1960s. Two young women, both named Marie, revolt against a degenerate, decayed and oppressive society, attacking symbols of wealth and bourgeois culture. A riotous, punk-poem of a film that is both hilarious and mind-warpingly innovative, it has influenced generations of filmmakers.

Defiant feminist statement? Nihilistic, avant-garde comedy? Daisies remains a fascinating cinematic rollercoaster. Remarkable and refreshingly uncompromising, it continues to provoke, stimulate and entertain.

Pavel Prokopic is a Czech filmmaker, and lecturer at the University of Salford. His current work focuses on advancing cinema as a unique form of art and storytelling by combining creative experimentation, philosophical concepts, and cutting-edge technologies. His work has been widely published, exhibited and presented, including FACT in Liverpool and V&A museum in London. He holds an AHRC-funded PhD, and a Master’s degree in Film Aesthetics from Magdalen College, University of Oxford.
