Film Series: Daisies

1966. Czech. Dir: Vera Chytilova?. With Jitka Cerhova?. 76 min. 35mm print.

A duo of impish young women wreak revenge against society via destructive pranks targeting capitalist overconsumption, communist hypocrisy, patriarchal condescension, sexual innocence, and conventional narrative itself. Deliriously weird and stunningly anarchic, Daisies was promptly banned by the Czech government due to the “wanton” nature of Chytilova’s avant-garde approach.
