Join us in the magnificent setting of The Haining House for a rare screening of Věra Chytilová’s classic of surrealist cinema that is perhaps also 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. Defiant feminist statement? Nihilistic, avant-garde comedy? It remains a cinematic enigma and its influence is still felt today – from the extreme Baise-Moi to the mainstream Thelma & Louise and in the films of (amongst others) Jacques Rivette, Bertrand Blier, Catherine Breillat and Gregg Araki.
A riotous, punk-rock poem of a film that is both hilarious and mind-warpingly innovative, Daisies continues to provoke, stimulate and entertain.’ – Second Run DVD

Next screening: Feminist Film Club on 28 September.
