  • See You in Denver

    2007. Czech Republic. Directed by Jan Sikl. As a child living in prewar Prague, Frantisek Cvancaru loved watching American Westerns and slapstick comedies in his father's chain of cinemas. When the Communist nationalization of the Czech film industry took away the family business, Frantisek satisfied his cinematic obsessions by shooting his own movies, until he was banned from school and unjustly imprisoned. Swept up in the momentous events of 1968, he decided to immigrate to the country of his silver-screen dreams. In Czech; English subtitles. 52 min.

  • With Kisses from Your Love

    2007. Czech Republic. Directed by Jan Sikl. Based on family films and impassioned letters from the 1940s and 1950s, this episode relates the story of high-school sweethearts Marie and Josef Sechtl, who married after the war and inherited the photography studio that had belonged to Josef's family for several generations. After the 1948 Communist takeover, the Sechtls lived in constant fear of losing their studio and their family's treasured, irreplaceable archive of photographs dating back to the late-nineteenth century. But nothing, not even show trials and prison, could extinguish their profound love. In Czech; English subtitles. 52 min.
