Erotikon + live accompaniment by Lydia Kavina (theremin), Thomas Ang (piano)

This landmark of Czech cinema explores the moral consequences of a night of passion between a Prague playboy and a provincial stationmaster’s daughter who becomes pregnant. Abandoned by the philanderer, she marries another man, but still dreams of the passion she experienced with her former lover. Restored by the Czech National Film Archive, Erotikon is the forerunner to director Gustav Machatý’s Ecstasy and a landmark in European silent film.
