The Plastic People of the Universe

The Plastic People of the Universe
(Directed by Jana Chytilova, 2001, 74 min)
Czech with English subtitles

A compelling story of musical passion against governmental odds. While The Plastic People of the Universe is mostly a talking-head video about the Czech rock and roll band formed in 1968, the description of various oppressive measures that the regime took to silence the band's lyrical rebellion is certainly a journey worth hearing about.

The film screening is part of the lecture series "Approaches to Counter-Cultural Movements in East-Central Europe".
