"Late Night Talks With Mother"
Directed by Jan Nemec
More cinematic confession than documentary, this
captivating, innovative film diary finds Czech New Wave director Jan Nemec
attempting to unravel the threads of a difficult relationship with his
deceased mother. In an imaginary dialogue with her, Nemec effectively
interweaves episodes from his personal life with major events of the 20th
century. Inspired by Kafka's Letter to My Father, this is "an
artistic and technical tour de force" (Cineaste). In Czech with
English subtitles. 68 minutes.
