This film is the 2nd entry of our Subversive Film Festival.
A girl on the verge of womanhood finds herself in a sensual fantasyland of vampires, witchcraft, and other threats in this eerie and mystical movie daydream. Valerie and Her Week of Wonders serves up an endlessly looping, nonlinear fairy tale, set in a quasi-medieval landscape. Ravishingly shot, enchantingly scored, and spilling over with surreal fancies, this enticing phantasmagoria from director Jaromil Jireš is among the most beautiful oddities of the Czechoslovak New Wave.
WARNING: this is not called Subversive film festival without due cause. These films will challenge the viewer’s beliefs on practically everything. They will doubtless contain many ‘triggering’ events and are not necessarily ‘politically correct’. If you are hyper-sensitive or easily offended, please stay away.
