    Directed by: Barry Levinson
    USA, 1988, 134min.
    Section: Special Events

    Directed by: David Ondříček
    Czech Republic, 2018, 150min.
    Section: Czech Films 2017–2018

    David Ondříček’s TV film looks back at one of the country's greatest mining tragedies. In 1961 a fire broke out in the Dukla mine near Ostrava and killed 108 miners. This rousing family drama heads slowly towards a needless and incomprehensible disaster that resonates in the harsh region to this very day.

    Loves of a Blonde Lásky jedné plavovlásky
    Directed by: Miloš Forman
    Czechoslovakia, 1965, 77min.
    Section: Special Events

    Back in the day viewers throughout Europe and probably elsewhere became intrigued by an insignificant young trainee from a small Czech town. And this thanks to Miloš Forman, who rendered his tale of innocent Andula and her emotional disenchantment in an innovative way, suggesting to the audience that they are direct observers of her ordinary yet still remarkable and universal story.

    Directed by: Jan Svěrák
    Czech Republic, 1994, 102min.
    Section: Out of the Past

    In this unusual action sci-fi comedy a secret parallel reality exists behind the television screen – some sort of world “behind the mirror” filled with corresponding images of us that siphon off our strength. Sheepish outsider Olda is going to have to battle his vigorously demanding double – with the remote slung pretty damn low around his waist. World premiere of the remastered version.

    Asger is finishing one of the many annoying duties at the police station when he gets a call from a kidnapped woman. Can he help her quickly and with strategic savvy?

    Directed by: Marina Zenovich
    USA, 2018, 116min.
    Section: Out of the Past

    After Roman Polanski and Richard Pryor, acclaimed documentarist Marina Zenovich turned her attention towards matchless comedian and respected dramatic actor Robin Williams (1951–2014). His life and career are relayed to us via never-before-seen archive footage and reminiscences from friends and colleagues, together creating an image of an endearing and wild eccentric regarded by many as the wittiest man on the planet.

    Bear with Us Chata na prodej
    Directed by: Tomáš Pavlíček
    Czech Republic, 2018, 77min.
    Section: East of the West - Competition

    A family has decided to sell their lovely cottage as none of them has visited it for some time. Yet it holds so many nostalgic memories that the mother suggests they all spend one last day there before the sale takes place. This deliberately paced comedy, whose protagonists often remind the viewer of characters from a Jaroslav Papoušek screenplay, takes an agreeably detached view of the Czech phenomenon of weekending in the country.

    Directed by: Šimon Šafránek
    Czech Republic, 2018, 82min.
    Section: Special Events

    The first feature-length documentary about the rise of skateboarding in Czechoslovakia presents a gripping tale of the search for freedom in a society stifled by the communist regime. Unique archive shots set to a driving punk soundtrack introduce us to the cult masters of the board and their never-ending party ride through the grey days of Normalization.

    Strangers on a Train Strangers on a Train
    Directed by: Alfred Hitchcock
    USA, 1951, 101min.
    Section: Out of the Past

    Thirty-year-old Patricia Highsmith must have felt honored when the great Hitchcock chose to film her very first novel Strangers on a Train (1950). He must certainly have been drawn to a character often found in his own work – the dangerous psychopath hiding his predilections behind a flawless mask. Here, shortly before his untimely death, the talented Robert Walker appears as the dashing and irresistible ladies’ man.
