Special event of the NEW CZECH FILM series, curated by IRENA KOVAROVA

Kawasaki’s Rose, by director Jan Hrebejk and screenwriter Petr Jarchovsky, has been named the official Czech Republic entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2011 Academy Awards. The film was selected by members of Czech Film and Television Academy.

This is the third film from Jan Hrebejk (Divided We Fall, Up & Down) and the fourth film from Jarchovsky (Divided We Fall, Zelary, Up & Down) that the Academy sent to represent the Czech Republic in competition for the Oscars. The film examines the long-lasting emotional destruction often left in the wake of fascism: Pavel Josek, an esteemed psychiatrist, is about to receive one of the Czech Republic’s highest national honors. Josek’s son-in-law, suspicious of Josek’s reputation as a dissenting hero during Communism, looks for an opportunity to discredit his father-in-law.
