Vlačil lives again!

Marketa LazarovaA major retrospective of the films of František Vlačil begins in Prague tonight with a screening of Marketa Lazarová and finishes with the same film on 3 May 2013.

The cycle takes place at Bio Ponrepo, the cinema of the Czech National Film Archive. Between the two screenings of Vlačil’s most regarded film there is a season of many of his other films including documentaries and shorts.



The cycle is billed as “The Second life of František Vlačil” by the NFA, referring to the gradual rehabilitation of his reputation, which has been growing outside the Czech Republic before catching on there.
