Dir. Vera Chytilová. 1966, 76 mins. 35mm. With Jitka Cerhová and Ivana Karbanová. One of the most beloved films of the radical sixties, Czech New Wave legend Vera Chytilová’s sublimely anything-goes explosion of cinema has been called many things: a great feminist work, a classic of anarchist comedy, a key experimental film, and, by the censorious Czech government at the time, a public menace due to its “promoting of food wastage.” Any way you look at it—and there’s a lot to look at—this fanciful, narrative-decimating portrait of two young women who refuse to play by the rules of patriarchal society and begin to tear it all down is a singular vision that has to be experienced communally in a theater.
