The Czechoslovak New Wave Collection
  • Description

    This specially priced, Limited Edition 3-disc set comprises three extraordinary features from a golden age of Eastern European cinema which came to be known as the 'Czechoslovak New Wave'. This brief five-year period, from 1963 to 1968, produced an astonishing sequence of films that made a huge impact on world cinema. These three integral works of that most creative period were made in the most difficult of circumstances under the gaze of Government censors, yet achieved a miraculous and subversive marriage of content and form. Now, fifty years on, the films remain as remarkable as ever.

    3-Disc Set comprises:
    Diamonds of the Night / Démanty noci (Jan Němec,1964)
    Němec's thrilling and startlingly original debut chronicles the tense and desperate journey of two teenage boys who are trying to stay alive after escaping from a German train bound for a Nazi concentration camp during World War II.
    Intimate Lighting / Intimní osvětlení (Ivan Passer, 1965)
    Regarded as one of the finest works of the Czechoslovak New Wave, this wonderfully subtle and affectionately comic study of provincial life becomes, in Passer’s masterful hands, a film of profound compassion and universal resonance. Stunningly shot by the great cinematographer Miroslav Ondricek.
    The Cremator / Spalovač mrtvol (Juraj Herz, 1968)
    This nightmarish comedy of terror about a professional cremator working in Nazi-occupied Prague and able to give vent to his increasingly deranged impulses. A uniquely dark and disturbing experience, heightened with a terrific score by the great Zdeněk Liška.
