Loves of a Blonde at Overnight Film Festival in Eastbourne

Milos Forman’s rarely shown second feature will be shown at Overnight Film Festival, a new communal cinema experience where your ticket includes accommodation at the legendary Queens Hotel in Eastbourne over the weekend of February 26, 27, 28.

Three special guest curators Emma Dabiri, Jenn Nkiru and Ariane Labed will lead a programme of unique screenings, immersive discussions and sensational parties in a dreamy location by the sea.

Loves of a Blonde is a sweet, funny, sad and open-hearted gem focusing on the romantic travails of a young female factory worker from rural Czechoslovakia. Overnight Film Festival’s head of programming Isabel Moir says: “I first saw Loves of a Blonde as a student. I was really into 1960s European cinema, especially the women of the French New Wave, and a friend suggested this Czech film from the same period. I fell in love with everything about it! The song in the opening credits, the depiction of youthful friendship, the all-female world that the girls have created for themselves while longing for any male presence. I love the main character – she’s so charming – and I completely identify with her infatuation. It’s the perfect tragicomedy! Also the fact that they’re away from a major city fits with our festival setting. I grew up in Eastbourne and screening one of my favourite films in my home town is going to be really special.”
