“One of the most exhilarating stylistic and psychedelic eruptions of the ’60s.” —Jonathan Rosenbaum
The visually arresting Daisies, part of the Czech New Wave, challenges gender-identity politics. Two young women mutiny against the culture around them through actions that range from playful to destructive. Following the political upheaval in 1968, Chytilová was banned from making films until 1975. 1966, 35mm, 74 minutes.
Introduced by Alice Lovejoy, Department of Cultural Studies & Comparative Literature, University of Minnesota
