Czech films in Edinburgh: The Best of Czech Cinema 1999 – 2009

After the fall of Communism in 1989, it took a few years for Czech cinema to adjust to a denationalised film industry and the new demands of the market. But by 2008, Czech films had achieved a domestic market share second only to France.

Over the past twenty years, a generation of new directors has emerged, while veterans such as Jan Svankmajer have continued to produce highly innovative work.

This selection includes some of the best films from this period, and provides a journey through a society in transition, but also one with a strong awareness of its cultural traditions.
