The muse and co-creator of the best works of the Czechoslovak New Wave, including Chytilová’s Daisies, credited for giving the Wave its distinct look, is portrayed here by her former partner in art and life. In a collage of conversations illustrated by her own art, Němec distils his subject’s remarkable strength of personality and artistic vision. Screens before The Party and the Guests.
