Second Run DVD Double Bill
The Ear, 18 February at 7.15 pm
Valerie and Her Week of Wonders, 18 February at 9.10 pm


The Ear (12)
Ucho

Directed by Karel Kachyña
Czechoslovakia, 1970, 91m subtitles
This landmark film is an extraordinary mix of a direct indictment of life under an oppressive totalitarian regime and a not-so-private examination of a disintegrating marital relationship. Although made in 1970 The Ear was immediately banned by the Czech authorities and remained unseen for twenty years.

Valerie and Her Week of Wonders (15)
Valerie a týden divů

Directed by Jaromil Jireš
Czechoslovakia, 1970, 73m subtitles
An enduring cult classic, Valerie and Her Week of Wonders mixes horror, fairytale and dreamy symbolism to depict the fantastical world inhabited by a young girl on the threshold of adulthood. With its stunning visuals and remarkable score, Valerie casts a powerful spell and is one of the most influential fantasies ever made.
