New Czech Films at the Gene Siskel Film Center

New Czech Films U.S. Tour 2012

June 9-26

Provocative premieres and prize-winners make up this series of six recent films from the Czech Republic. They range from PROTEKTOR’s stylish but sinister drama and the real-life human comedy of MATCHMAKING MAYOR to LEAVING, the first and only film directed by playwright and former Czech Republic president, the late Vaclav Havel. The series opens with WALKING TOO FAST, the thriller that swept the 2011 Czech Lion Awards, with director Radim Spacek in person on June 9.

The touring series “New Czech Films U.S. Tour 2012” is curated by Irena Kovarova, and organized by the Gene Siskel Film Center, the Czech Film Center, and the Consulate General of the Czech Republic, Chicago, with additional support from the Czech Center New York.
