The Party and the Guests

A friendly picnic in the forest turns into a nightmare awaking the instinct for self-preservation and revealing the true characters of all those threatened. This brilliant, absurdist parable paints a chilling picture of the tactics used to coerce individuals into adopting the dominant political ideology and the destruction of those who don’t. Considered to be an attack on the political system, it was ‘banned forever’ by the Czechoslovak government. Full of astute observation of human nature and sharp satire, this is another timeless masterpiece.
