Considered by many to be the greatest Czech film ever made, this dazzling adaptation of a purportedly unfilmable novel by Vladislav Vančura recreates the textures and mentalities of medieval life with inventive widescreen cinematography, editing, and sound design. The stirring depiction of a feud between two rival clans is a fierce, epic, and meticulously designed evocation of the clashes between Christianity and paganism, humankind and nature, love and violence. (165 mins., 35mm)

Jean Dubuffet, Vaches au pre (Cows in a meadow), 1954
