PRIVATE CENTURY SERIES – SEE YOU IN DENVER

MARCH 18, 7 PM

CZECH CENTER NEW YORK

See You in Denver (Sejdeme se v Denveru), Dir. Jan Šikl, 2006, 52min, in Czech with

English Subtitles.

Screening of the Private Century series based on private film footage tells the story of two generations of the Hvanhara family over the period of 50 years from 1920 to 1970.

It offers an apt reflection of Czechoslovakia in the 20th century starting in Prague’s Žižkov quarter in a family of a film distributor and owner of several cinemas. The son František heard many of his American western heroes depart with the words “See You in Denver” – and that’s where he decided to emigrate in 1968 after the struggles his family went through from WWII to the arrival of Russian tanks.

Film Club is curated by Irena Kovářová.
