Wild Bees

 

A dark, satirical look inside a Moravian village yields a beehive of trouble. Shy 18-year-old Kaja lives with his grandmother and philosophizing father. Kaja’s main occupation in life is secretly admiring the girl of his dreams: Bozka, a wild-child who peddles sausages in the local village. When Kaja’s prodigal brother arrives from Prague for a visit, long stagnant relationships begin to stir. [2001, directed by Bohdan Slama, 94 min., in Czech with English subtitles]

 

Presented films are part of the RARE BOHEMIANS touring series produced by Irena Kovarova in cooperation with the Czech Film Center, Prague. Additional support provided by Czech Centres.
