Come join our mini film festival on freedom and democracy. Our first film tells the story of a friendship between three teenage boys, who were swept up in the Velvet Revolution of 1989. Petr, Jiri and Ondrej are an unlikely trio of friends: an artist, a hockey player and a music trader, the boys survive Communism by playing sports, drinking beer, chasing girls and listening to underground music. But on a cold, dark night in November, Petr, Jiri and Ondrej join the front lines of student demonstrations in Prague. Face-to-face with the riot police, the boys are forced into a momentous decision: stand up against the Communist regime or give in to a system that has silenced their families for generations. Based upon true stories from the Velvet Revolution, Listopad is a timeless story of political and artistic courage. Starring Filip Cíl, Filip Tomsa and Igor Bareš. Directed by Gary Griffin, screenplay by Arnošt Lustig.
In Czech with English subtitles, 90 mins.
