Pavel Juráček’s two-part absurdist drama examines the life of a soldier under socialism, and features Vaclav Havel in a role as a patient seeking treatment. Preceded by The Uninvited Guest (Nezvaný host) (1969, 22m): When a boorish official enters and makes himself at home in a young couple’s flat, it’s soon apparent that all the flats in the building face the same dilemma—each has its own intruder.
Screens at the Trylon Monday and Tuesday, November 3 and 4 at 7:00 and 9:00. All shows are free and open to the public.
We are proud to partner with the National Film Archive Prague, Václav Havel Library, Embassy of the Czech Republic in Washington, and Czech and Slovak Sokol Minnesota to bring to the Twin Cities these feature-length and short films celebrating Havel’s work.
