Garbage, the City and Death (Odpad, město a smrt)

Inspired by Fassbinder’s scandalous play and based on a cult theatre production, the story of an unfortunate prostitute is filmed in Prague standing in for a dilapidated city run by corrupt police, politicians, lobbyist and property speculators. Romi, abused by her homosexual pimp and her xenophobic father, thinks life will improve when she meets a rich Jew who pays her generously for her stories. Addressing racism, homophobia and contemporary corruption, this is Hřebejk’s tribute to the former Prague Comedy Theatre.
