Day #2 of Eight Days of Anarchy presents Daisies. Before Riot Gurlz, before Punk, before Yippies, there was Daisies, (1966). The premier Czech New Wave film, this early feminist, anarchistic, psychedelic romp through cold war Czechoslovakia was banned immediately after the Soviet Invasion in 1968 and the director prohibited from making movies in her home country until 1975.
Despite a director approved re-write of the English subtitles, they remained awkward and incomprehensible in many places. Having no knowledge of Czech, I rewrote most the dialogue in colloquial English. When I hit sections that were open to multiple interpretations, I assumed the most absurd. (A Day at the Worker’s Paradise starring the Marx Sisters, Marie and Maria)
