Sedmikrásky (Madeliefjes)

Vera Chytilová / CSHH, 1966 / 76 min.

A playful classic about two bored young girls who decide to shake things up a bit. The refreshingly radical  Sedmikrásky (Daisies) by the Czech New Wave pioneer Věra Chytilová flaunts every rule in the book. A digitally restored classic.
