Most! + Q&A with director Jan Prušinovský and screenwriter Petr Kolečko

A provocative and politically incorrect comedy miniseries, Most! has won over the Czech TV audience and became the most talked-about show of 2019. Set in the city of Most it revolves around pub bum Ludan, who owes money to the local mafia boss, but has just lost his job thanks to his racist comments. Finding refuge in the local pub, Ludan spends his time drinking beer with his mates: Eda, the owner of the ‘only-for-whites’ pub; unemployed Cockin, an excommunicated priest; and Franta, a Romany who is the only one able to pay his bill. A local, sleepy community changes for ever with the arrival of Ludan’s brother, now turned into an energetic sexy blonde, and triggers a merry-go-round of lies and improvisations. A sensitive mix of comedy and social drama with an excellent cast, great dialogues and brutally cynical but exhilarating humour.

Jan Prušinovský, CZ 2019, 4 x 47', English subtitles
Cast: Martin Hofmann, Erika Stárková, Filip František Červenka, Zdeněk Godla

Four episodes of the series will be shown, with an interval after the first two.

A complimentary beer with each ticket. For 18+ only.
