Published on behalf of the East European Film Bulletin
In collaboration with the Czech and Slovak Film Festival of Australia, the East European Film Bulletin is publishing a special issue on the theme of political resistance in Věra Chytilová’s films. We are looking for essay-long contributions on her films that pay particular attention to their place in resistance movements such as feminism, the Prague spring and/or Perestroika. We are looking for contributions to focus on the following list of Chytilová films:
Ceiling / Strop (1961)
A Bagful of Fleas / Pytel blech (1962)
Something Different / O něčem jiném (1963)
Daisies / Sedmikrásky (1966)
Prefab Story / Panelstory aneb Jak se rodí sídliště (1980)
Traps / Pasti, pasti, pasticky (1998)
Proposals of 250 words for contributions that deal with any aspects of the above themes should be emailed to Colette de Castro (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Sunday 15 July 2018. Final contributions will be due on 15 September 2018.
