    "The Anarchic Cinema of Věra Chytilová"  explores the work of the most radical director to emerge from the Czechslovak New Wave, Věra Chytilová (1929–2014). Known primarily in the US for her wild feminist classic Daisies, Chytilová left behind a rich body of rarely-screened, genre-spanning works, all infused with her defiantly anti-authoritarian, anti-patriarchal worldview and freewheeling visual style. The series includes: Something Different (1963); Journey (Blaževič, 2003); Family Film (Omerzu, 2015); Fruit of Paradise (1970); The Jester and the Queen (1982); Daisies (1966); Panelstory (1980); Wolf’s Hole (1987); The Inheritance or Fuckoffguysgoodday (1992); Ceiling (1962), screening with A Bagful of ...
