Hommage to Vojtěch Jasný: Kulterer

An adaptation of Thomas Bernhard's short story of the same name originally produced for Austrian television and starring the celebrated Austrian actor Helmut Qualtinger in the lead role of the prisoner, Hans Fabian Kulterer. Respected in jail as a writer of short stories, Kulterer sees his prison as a place of self-fulfillment. In contrast with the other inmates, incarceration doesn't break him, on the contrary - it provides him with the time to write.

Made in Prague: Hommage to Vojtěch Jasný
Celebrating the 90th birthday and achievements of an outstanding Czech filmmaker who has had a profound influence on films like Edgar Reitz's Heimat and Michael Haneke's The White Ribbon, the season pays a tribute to his work. Starting with a triple bill of his three Cannes Film Festival winners at the Regent Street Cinema, it presents Jasný’s key films from his 50+ portfolio shot in Czechoslovakia, Austria, West Germany, USA and Canada, demonstrating the width and diversity of his filmmaking and his distinctive auteur flavour, poetic style and spiritual values.
