Directed by Frantisek Vlacil | 1967

With Josef Kemr, Magda Vasaryova, Nada Hejna, Jaroslav Moucka

"Vlacil paints a world of rivalry, despair, lust, and revenge in restless brush strokes, his camera following characters, animals, and nature's shifting currents with equal curiosity."
—Slant Magazine

The crowning achievement of the Czechoslovak New Wave is this epic celluloid hallucination of savagery and mysticism in the Middle Ages. Centered around a violent feud between two 13th-century pagan clans, Marketa Lazarova is a riddle that’s not to be cracked (at least not on first viewing). Featuring a hypnotic dreamscape—hooded figures wandering through stark, barren landscapes and black wolves prowling virgin snow—and set to a thunderous, primordial soundtrack of clanging bells and liturgical chanting, the film’s lustrous, monochrome ’Scope cinematography gleams in this 35mm print.
