30th ANNIVERSARY OF THE VELVET REVOLUTION

17 November 2019 marks the 30th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution in Czechoslovakia, which led to the fall of the communist regime in the country and the re-birth of democracy after more than forty years of totalitarian rule. It was the victory of students over the oppressive apparatus controlled by Moscow, we’re celebrating that important time in history with the screening of the classic Czech film – Kolya.

KOLYA
1996 ‧ Drama/Melodrama ‧ 1h 51m ‧ Dir. Jan Svěrák

As the Cold War winds down, former concert cellist Louka (Zdenek Sverák) barely makes ends meet providing accompaniment at funerals after being blacklisted from his much cushier job with the Prague Philharmonic. For a fee, he marries a Russian woman (Libuse Safránková) so she can become a Czech citizen, but she immediately emigrates to West Germany, sticking the bachelor with her sickly 5-year-old Kolya (Andrej Chalimon) and a host of official questions about the sham marriage.
