ANDĚL PÁNĚ 2 (ANGEL OF THE LORD 2)

What is typical and traditional for Czech Christmas? Definitely fairytales as well as the sweet smell of Christmas cookies. Therefore, we are pleased to screen one of the most popular Christmas fairytales – Angel of the Lord 2. It tells the story of an angel, Petronel, and his tempter, devil Uriah. Together they lose an Apple from the Tree of Knowledge as it falls all the way down from Heaven to Earth. While looking for the Apple they enter the human world the night before Saint Nicolas’ Day with the mission to bring the Apple back. In the end our heroes discover that the true path to knowledge lies in friendship, love and the will to forgive. Angel of the Lord 2 was directed by Jiří Strach and released before Christmas in 2016.

ICE MOTHER

Taking charge over one’s life can come at any age, but never without consequences! Hana, the selfless caring mother and grandmother, is swept off her feet during the unexpected encounter with Brona – the winter swimmer. But as their love affair melts the ice, generational rifts surface. This comedy-drama portrays the varied forms of love and how difficult it is to priorities one over the other. Directed by Bohdan Slama, the movie was awarded the best-picture, screenplay and direction in 2017 by the Czech Film Academy.
