The žižkovšiška gang continue their Forman’s February series with a screening of his Oscar-winning 1975 dramedy “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”. *Film starts at 21.00h, but come as early as 18.00h for some Czech chat. 50kc, includes free popcorn. More Info Here

A gala concert to benefit Motol Hospital Pediatric Oncology, with some pretty fantastic musical talents, including Elly Jay and Janet Feinstein. At Grand Hotel Bohemia. It’s 950kc a ticket, which might seem steep, but for kids with cancer, so come on! *19.00-21.30h. More Info Here.

A Maze in Tchaiovna will show the New Zealand documentary “Antarctica: A Year on Ice”, which has won numerous awards. It’s beautiful and thought-provoking and an all around worthwhile thing to see. FREE. *19.30h. More Info Here.

Movie Barf Mondays continues at Edison Filmhub, this time with one of last year’s Oscar nominees for Best Foreign Language Film “Shoplifters”, from Japanese director Hirokazu Kore-eda. The drama looks at a “family” (not biologically related) who are quite poor and must rely on shoplifting to survive. Some echoes of “Parasite” here. In Japanese with Czech and English subs. 150kc. *19.45h. More Info Here.

An evening of short experimental films at Kampus Hybernska, two from Ireland’s Experimental Film Society, one from Mexico’s Colectivo Los Ingravidos and one from Chilean director Matias A. Donoso. All English-friendly. In the Big Hall. Entry is FREE. *20.00h. More Info Here.

Ponrepo has been showing a retrospective of Fellini films, which we haven’t mentioned because they’re all in Italian with Czech subs. But his phantasmagorical deconstructionist 1972 “Roma”, made up of a series of vignettes, has large sections with either no dialogue or where the dialogue is inconsequential (only the first couple of bits really have dialogue of note). It’s a wild and rather amazing film, and one of our favs. Frankly, we don’t know why this innovative film’s style and structure has not been copied more by subsequent filmmakers. 80kc. *20.30h. More Info Here.

Houston’s Kendrick Scott Oracle is a jazz drummer, bandleader and composer (as well as founder of World Culture Music), and he’s coming to Jazz Dock with a new 12-song cycle called A Wall Becomes a Bridge (being released on Blue Note).

Man, people sure like the new Korean film “Parasite”. Apparently the director had toyed with the idea of actually making it a black and white film, but was talked into going full colour.

Screens the 10th through the 16th at Aero, Oko and Světozor, but only at Světozor on the 11th does it also have English subtitles. 145kc. *20.30h. More Info Here.
