Daisies (1966)

  • Daisies Slider Image

Czechoslovakia | 76 min | 35mm | Dir. Vera Chytilová

Two teenage girls, both named Marie, decide that since the world is spoiled they will be spoiled as well; accordingly they embark on a series of destructive pranks in which they consume and destroy the world about them. This freewheeling, madcap feminist farce was immediately banned by the government (IMDb).

"But the extraordinary 1966 film “Daisies” represents an exhilarating, lesser-known strain of the Czech New Wave. This radically mischievous work was the second feature of the wave’s sole female director, Vera Chytilova. In her visually arresting, capricious film — full of colorful experiments, dazzling collage effects and surrealist antics — two dangerously bored young women have anarchic fun in a series of loosely connected episodes." -Nicolas Rapold (NYT)

This event is intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff and Union members and guests.
