The White Dove (Holubice)
The debut feature of master filmmaker František Vlácil (Marketa Lazarová; The Valley of the Bees) The White Dove’s straightforward narrative belies complex themes and striking visual imagery. A young boy injures and then nurses a white dove back to health so that it can continue its journey home. Echoing Ken Loach’s film Kes, and with music by the great Zdenek Liška, the film emerges as a work of great poetry and humanism.

Josef Kilián (Postava k podpírání)
The surrealist Josef Kilián (making its world-première release on DVD) is a dark and absurdly humorous, biting allegory of life under a totalitarian regime. Inspired by the grotesque nightmares of Franz Kafka and another icon of Czech literature, the anti-militarist, anti-authoritarian Jaroslav Hasek, the film was supressed by the authorities after the Soviet invasion of 1968. Having made only four films, and despite being the author of the screenplays for Jindrich Polák's Ikarie XB 1, Vera Chytilová's Daisies and Karel Zeman's A Jester’s Tale, Jurácek remains one of the Czechoslovak New Wave’s most neglected artists.
