(Šakali leta), 1993, 110 min, dir. Jan Hřebejk


To peacefully small-town live entry "man from nowhere", young hooligan Bejby (Baby), he with his eccentric clothes, guittar and craze for rock 'n' roll

disturb slack water of not only boy's world, but too into adult's world, striving not think about hard times, what time they lives. Bejby with his unwaited coming interfere into live waiter's helper Eda Drábek, warder Prokok and his son, nicknamed and in a way too into live chanteuse Milada and her Husband, arrogant member of StB Přemek.


It would be hard to imagine films without songs and music as they follow the cinematography from its beginning. The songs play a prominent role in transmitting deep emotion of love and joy but also despair or revolt in a unique way that touches, opens or break down boundaries. This year’s selection of rooftop films reflects various tendencies in the use of music and songs revealing the different moods in the 20th Century.

We invite you to join us in this exciting journey through images and sounds!
