Part of our Czech That Film series April 18th - 21st

A rebellious teenager and his dorky, BB-gun-toting sidekick run away through the Czech countryside in a stolen Audi. Along the way, they pick up a dog and a pretty female hitchhiker as they try to elude the police. An interrogation of tall tales of exploits is contrasted against awkwardness, innocence, and adulthood. This coming-of-age road movie tells a story of adolescent friendship and the irrepressible desire to experience something even if one doesn’t know exactly what that something is – a sense of unbridled freedom. Winter Flies received the Best Director award at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival.
