Event description

Description

For the first screening in our 'Bookseller's Choice' series, Gayle introduces Daisies (Sedmikrásky), Věra Chytilová’s classic of surrealist cinema.

Two young women, both named Marie, revolt against a degenerate, decayed and oppressive society, attacking symbols of wealth and bourgeois culture. Defiant feminist statement? Nihilistic, avant-garde comedy? Daisies remains a cinematic enigma, and is perhaps also the most adventurous and anarchic Czech movie of the 1960s.

The evening will be hosted by Gareth Evans, curator of film at the Whitechapel Gallery.
