IFFR will present the most extensive retrospective of the work of Jan Němec ever assembled. Alongside familiar classics, the programme will also present seldom-seen works from the fifteen-year period of Němec’s exile. Consisting of fiction films, documentaries, shorts and television films, this programme reflects the huge diversity of the Czech filmmaker’s oeuvre. Heart Beat 3D (2010), an experimental work that has hardly ever been shown, will have its international première in Rotterdam, as will Němec’s last film The Wolf from Royal Vineyard Street (2016).
