Made in Prague: The New Czech Cinema UK Tour

Made in Prague, a biennial UK showcase of contemporary Czech cinema, is back for the fifth time with five titles crisscrossing the UK. Capturing the country's dramatic past and its influence on contemporary life and culture, five internationally acclaimed films tour 24 UK venues. BURNING BUSH (Hořící keř), a mesmerising docudrama by Polish/US director Agnieszka Holland (Europa, Europa; In Darkness), portrays the Czech experience after the 1968 Soviet invasion of the country and draws on her personal experience while Andrea Sedláčková's FAIR PLAY is an intimate study of a young female athlete caught in a web of state sponsored doping. In the contemporary psychological drama HONEYMOON (Líbánky) by Jan (the Oscar-nominated Divided We Fall) Hřebejk about buried secrets the happiness of the central couple is threatened when an uninvited wedding guest questions the groom’s past. Miroslav Krobot’s humourous debut NOWHERE IN MORAVIA (Díra u Hanušovic) focuses on eccentric characters looking for love and living an isolated life; whereas in Martin Dušek's fascinating and sensitive documentary INTO THE CLOUDS WE GAZE (K oblakům vzhlížíme) it is car tuning which substitutes for love and lack of opportunities for the main character.
