Kino Kavalírka and the U.S. Embassy, in cooperation with the American Center, will present … the American Winter film showcase. This time, it will explore the diverse range of American cinema of the 90’s with a special focus on the representation of women in the film professions. American cinema of the 90’s quickly took root in our country under the influence of the post-Soviet changes in the political system. Thanks to the distribution offer of cinemas, the newly emerging video rental companies and television, it became a part of many Czech households. However, women were only marginally represented in it. The program of this year’s American Winter provides a look at iconic American films of the 90’s from a new perspective and in a different context than we were used to. It highlights films that women were involved in creating, whether as directors, writers, editors or producers.
Woody, a good-hearted cowboy doll who belongs to a young boy named Andy, sees his position as his favorite toy jeopardized when his parents buy him a Buzz Lightyear action figure. Even worse, the arrogant Buzz thinks he’s a real spaceman on a mission to return to his home planet. When Andy’s family moves to a new house, Woody and Buzz must escape the clutches of maladjusted neighbor Sid Phillips and reunite with their friend.
