Notes:
A new HD re-master and transfer from original materials by the Czech National Film Archive. Two young women, both named Marie, revolt against a degenerate and oppressive society, attacking symbols of wealth and bourgeois culture. A riotous, punk-poem of a film that is both hilarious and mind-warpingly innovative. Defiant feminist statement? Nihilistic, avant-garde comedy? Daises remains a fascinating cinematic roller-coaster. Remarkable and refreshingly uncompromising, it continues to provoke, stimulate and entertain. Supplemental features include: an audio commentary by the Daughters of Darkness, Samm Deighan and Kat Ellinger; audio commentary by film historians Peter Hames and Daniel Bird; JOURNEY (Cesta 2004) Jasmina Blaževič’s acclaimed documentary film portrait of Vêra Chytilová; the trailer (2009); and a 20-page booklet featuring Peter Hames’ essay on the film, available at checkout.
