The North American premiere of Petr Zelenka's Karamazovs will be screened this Thursday at 6:15 pm

at the Walter Reade Theater, Lincoln Center. This multiple award-winner from one of the Czech

Republic's wittiest and most talented filmmakers is the closing night film of The Ironic Curtain:

Czech Cinema since the Velvet Revolution, Lincoln Center's current retrospective. Following Q&A

with the filmmaker, Czech Center New York joins the Bohemian Hall and Beer Garden, Pilsner

Urquell and FAMU Film and TV Academy in presenting a reception in the Walter Reade gallery,

where artist/illustrator Peter Sis will be on hand to discuss the featured exhibition, Off the Wall:

The Art of Peter Sis. Off the Wall centers on the emigre author/artist's bestselling book, The Wall:

Growing Up Behind the Iron Curtain.


The Karamazovs is a darkly comedic show-within-a-show featuring a Czech drama troupe’s stage

adaptation of The Brothers Karamazov for a festival housed in a Polish factory where the Solidarity

movement was once based. The drama on stage meshes with the off-stage shenanigans of the

cast, both evoking Dostoevsky’s favorite themes of faith, doubt and moral responsibility – and

probing whether life imitates art or vice-versa. Making mischief of received icons, Mr. Zelenka’s

irreverent screen version of the Evald Schorm stage play situates the Velvet Revolution in a larger

context of Eastern Bloc change wrought by the collapse of Communism. The Karamazovs won

Czech Lions (the Czech equivalent of the Oscar) for Best Film and Best Director.


The Ironic Curtain: Czech  Cinema Since the Velvet Revolution, October 23-29 at Walter Reade

Theater, Lincoln Center. 
Curated by Laura Blum in collaboration with the Film Society of Lincoln Center.
