VYLET/ SOME SECRETS (2002, in Czech with English subtitles, 100 mins., dir: Alice Nellis)

A touching and absurd road movie in which a grandmother fulfills her dream, a mother stops treating her grown-up daughters like children, the daughters stop treating their husbands like idiots, and the ashes of the late father are spread all over the countryside. Director Nellis creates a charming portrait that reveals how the families that seemingly get along the worst sometimes love each other more than any others. Winner of Best First Film at the San Sebastian Film Festival, Best Screenplay at the Thessaloniki Film Festival, Best Script at the FAMU Festival.

Partners: Czech Center, Budapest, International Visegrad Fund
