Pearls of the Deep Ji?í Menzel, V?ra Chytilová, Jaromil Jireš… 1966 A manifesto of sorts for the Czech New Wave, this five-part anthology shows off the breadth of expression and the versatility of the movement’s directors. Daisies V?ra Chytilová 1966 Daisies is an aesthetically and politically adventurous film that’s widely considered one of the great works of feminist cinema. A Report on the Party and Guests Jan N?mec 1966 In Jan N?mec’s surreal fable, a picnic is rudely transformed into a lesson in political hierarchy when a handful of mysterious authority figures show up. Return of the Prodigal Son Evald Schorm 1967 This raw psychological drama about an engineer unable to adjust to the world around him following his suicide attempt is at heart a scathing portrait of social alienation and moral compromise. Capricious Summer Ji?í Menzel 1968 Two years after his worldwide hit Closely Watched Trains, Ji?í Menzel directed this amusing idyll about three middle-aged men whose mellow summer is interrupted by the arrival of a circus performer and his beautiful assistant. The Joke box cover The Joke Jaromil Jireš 1969 Jaromil Jireš’s brilliant adaptation of Milan Kundera’s novel tells the fragmentary tale of a man expelled from the Communist Party because of a political joke.
