The Cassandra Cat
(Až prijde kocour)
A film by Vojtěch Jasný
Czechoslovakia, 1963

 

 


Vojtěch Jasný's sumptuous, surreal satire is one of the most lavish and uninhibited films of the entire Czechoslovak New Wave.

A magical travelling circus arrives in a provincial Czech town, exposing the virtues, vices and desires of it's unruly inhabitants.


Part modern fairy tale, part colourful political metaphor, The Cassandra Cat is a unique, glorious comic drama. Newly restored in all it's Technicolor glory, this Cannes award-winner makes its world premiere on Blu-ray.



 

“Charm, artistry and daring...
The film is beautifully photographed... Jasny's technique is both subtle and dramatic”

El Mar La Mar
A film by Joshua Bonnetta
and J.P. Sniadecki
USA, 2017

 

 


A moving portrait of life in the US-Mexico border region, El Mar La Mar is an immersive, captivating and terrifying journey through the Sonoran Desert. Weaving together harrowing personal accounts from those who cross the border and the cruel political rhetoric of the right-wing American media, with striking footage of desert life and the detritus left behind by travellers.


Intense and mythic, and utilising a rich polyphonic soundtrack to create a vivid exploration of the desert habitat, El Mar La Mar
is an experience like nothing you’ve seen, heard or felt before.



 

“Monumentally important protest art. [...]
It strives to unearth what the desert so conveniently wipes away: untold stories of sacrifice and struggle”

Glenn Heath Jr, Little White Lies
