Independent of Reality: The Films of Jan Nemec
BAMcinématek presents Independent of Reality: The Films of Jan Nemec, the first full-career US retrospective of the Czechoslovak New Wave director.
BAMcinématek is proud to present the first full-career US retrospective of Czechoslovak New Wave enfant terrible Jan Nemec. Though Nemec was an instrumental player in the Czechoslovak New Wave alongside Milos Forman, Jiri Menzel, Vera Chytilova, and others, he is relatively unknown stateside. This long-overdue survey of Nemec’s nearly 50 year career of uncompromising work features 12 films and a week-long run of Diamonds of the Night (1964) in a new 35mm print. The retrospective premieres at BAMcinématek before embarking on a tour through North America.
