Directed by Agnieszka Holland (Europa, Europa; In Darkness and episodes of iconic TV series; The Wire, The Killing and House of Cards), Burning Bush portrays the experiences of student protesters, the police and the media following the 1968 Soviet occupation of Czechoslovakia. Drawing on personal experience, Holland convincingly interweaves lives, stories and conflicting interests in this superb, consuming and politically charged Drama. This special cinema screening is a rare opportunity to see the entire three part HBO Europe mini-series on the big screen in the comfort of the Eden Court Cinemas.

Part of the Made in Prague, The New Czech Cinema UK Tour 2015, organised in collaboration with Czech Centre London and Czech Film Center.

At a village railway station in occupied Czechoslovakia a bumbling, shy young station guard attempts to lose his virginity in Jirí Menzel's brilliant and tender Comedy/ Drama. Winner of the 1968 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, Closely Observed Trains is "a masterpiece of human observation and one of the best-loved films of the 1960's Czech New Wave."

Immediately banned by government censors on its 1966 release, Vera Chytilová's story of two teenage girls on a playful, hedonistic rampage through Prague's restaurants , clubs and bars is a "psychedelic, feminist farce". Believing that "the only way to behave in a world as spoiled as ours is to become spoiled too, they disrupt, distort and corrupt every situation they encounter." Using animation, music, stock footage and slapstick humour, Daisies is a Surreal cinematic experience unlike any other!
