I, Olga Hepnarová

This event is a screening with commentary of the controversial, critically-acclaimed 2016 biopic of the last woman to be sentenced to death in Czechoslovakia. Portraying the short life of a troubled young woman I, Olga Hepnarová is a stark and studied depiction of mental illness, and offers a footnote to our contemporaneity. Where are the limits of humanity and understanding?

Commentary on the film will be presented by Dr Anna Taszycka (AFM Kraków University). The event will be chaired by Dr Urszula Chowaniec, Senior Teaching Fellow in Polish Language. It is part of a series of seminars relating to Gender/Queer and Art/Lit/Film in the Other Europe, a research project based at UCL’s School of Slavonic and East European Studies.

Part of UCL Festival of Culture
