Murdering the Devil
Ester Krumbachová / Czechoslovakia 1970 / 72 min. / DCP
The comedy prank was created as the only directorial work by the artist and screenwriter Ester Krumbachová, which gave shape to many New Wave films by Věra Chytilová and Jan Němec. In the guise of specific mannerist aesthetics, it explains the parable of struggles between genders, amplified by energetic performances of Jiřina Bohdalová and Vladimír Menšík. The work is referred to as the first Czech feminist film.
