As the 30th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution approaches, come join us for screening of The Unbearable Lightness of Being, based on Milan Kundera’s novel.
Tomas is a doctor and cad in 1960s Czechoslovakia, an apolitical man who is lovestruck for gentle photographer Tereza; his more sophisticated sometimes lover Sabina eventually accepts their relationship and the two women form electrician odd friendship. The three are caught up in the events of the Prague Spring (1968), until Soviet tanks crush the peaceful protesters, when their illusions are shattered and their lives change forever. Stars Daniel Day-Lewis and Juliette Binoche, directed by Philip Kaufman.
