Czech New Wave Part I

David and I are back with another episode of The Eclipse Viewer, the podcast dedicated to the Criterion Collection’s Eclipse Series of DVDs.

In this episode, we begin our discussion of Eclipse Series 32: Pearls of the Czech New Wave. In this part, we discuss the first three films in the set: Pearls of the Deep (1966), composed of five short films by different directors all adapting stories by Bohumil Hrabal; Daisies (1966); and A Report on the Party and Guests (1966), all terrific films and fascinating examples of this important movement in film history.

Please find the podcast, the shownotes, and plenty of links over at CriterionCast here.
