8 Mar 2015 - 14 Mar 2015

Traps (Pasti, pasti, pastičky)

Described as a ‘feminist black comedy,’ Chytilová’s post-communist film continues the confrontational approach of Prefab Story with the subject of a woman who is raped by two men. Unfortunately for them, she’s a veterinary surgeon practised in techniques of castration. Also a political commentary attacking male power, it shows Chytilová treating capitalist morality with the same enthusiasm previously reserved for ‘socialist’ compromise.

Czech Republic 1998, directed by Věra Chytilová, with Tomáš Hanák, Miroslav Donutil, Zuzana Stivínová, 124 min, 35mm, with English subtitles
