Doomed Beauty

Lída Baarová dazzled filmgoers with her beauty for a few short years before the clouds began to darken her career as a result of her affair with Goebbels. In her own reminiscences the actress sees herself as a victim, but the film, while listening with reverence, suggests that the tragedy of her fate holds a certain ambiguity

The Fabulous Baron Munchausen

In this unique treatment of the famous book by Gottfried August Bürger, Zeman was inspired by engravings used in the original edition from the hand of one of the most important illustrators of the 19th century, Gustave Doré. Filming the action in black and white, the director then used heavy tinting and different colors as symbols of the changing moods and surprising plot twists of the story. This fantastical adventure - interspersed with unique effects and funny gags - won many international prizes, among other festivals in Cannes and Locarno.

Normal Autistic Film

A foremost Czech documentarist with a unique authorial vision challenges us once and for all to stop perceiving autism as a medical diagnosis. Let’s take hold of the surrounding chaos and overload our senses! In such a state one may understand autism as a fascinating way of thinking that’s often maddeningly difficult to decipher.

The Way Out

Žaneta wants her young daughter to receive an education, she hankers after peaceful summer holidays and hopes that her partner David will stop looking at other women. You can sort certain things out behind closed doors, but when they treat you with contempt because you’re a Romany woman, there’s nothing you can do about it.

I, Olga Hepnarova

“This is my verdict. I, Olga Hepnarová, a victim of your brutality, sentence you to death by vehicle.” Thus wrote the 22-year-old woman in 1973 before using a truck to kill eight people in Prague. This restrained and chilling period drama investigates a lonely murderer whose actions are just as inexplicable as Hepnarová herself.

Karel Zeman in Jerusalem

We are happy to have a close cooperation with the Train Theatre and the International Puppet Festival in Jerusalem / תיאטרון הקרון. This year in a cooperation with Karel Zeman Museum / Muzeum Karla Zemana in Prague the festival celebrates the spirit of Karel Zeman’s amazing, fantastic world of animation that inspired such filmmakers as Steven Spielberg or Terry Gilliam. In Luuuuna Park in Park HaPa'amon in Jerusalem we prepared an exhibition of images from Karel Zeman's films and a special interactive station where visitors of all age groups can learn, try and understand the magic of film tricks before computers and Photoshop.

Laser String | David Vrbik at Teder

David Vrbik played in TEDER on his Laser String - ray of light that uses the newest technological principles to act like the actual string of a musical instrument when touched – it quivers, produces sound, then fades naturally. Photo: Pavlina Schultz
