Directed by Jan Nemec | 1964

With Ladislav Jansky, Antonin Kumbera, Irma Bischofova

"Nemec purposefully scrambles past and present, handheld realism and Buñuellian surrealism. It’s a torrent of life—and cinema—in the face of death."
—Time Out New York

Nemec’s conviction that a director must create “a personal style” and “a world independent of reality as it appears at the time” was already evident in his first feature length film. Diamonds follows the escape of two young concentration camp prisoners through the woods of Sudetenland and the ensuing pursuit for them. Moving freely between the present, dreams, and flashbacks, Nemec employs an aesthetic of pure cinema to depict the state of the distressed human mind. Newly struck archival 35mm print!

On Fri, Nov 8 at 7pm only, Diamonds of the Night screens with

A Loaf of Bread (1960)

RUN TIME: 11min

Based on a story by Arnost Lustig, Nemec’s graduation film follows the story of starving prisoners plotting to steal a piece of bread from a parked train in preparation for their escape (a subject that echoes that of Diamonds). The film won an award at a student film festival in Amsterdam and a main award at the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen.
