Bringing films back to their original form can be a real detective story. What was changed by time and what was changed by people? A film reconstruction; or, the search for truth... Join us on a trip to Okoř Castle, where location shooting for The Arrival from the Darkness, a silent horror film featuring Anny Ondráková, took place in 1921. A recent restoration revealed, among other things, that the film’s scenes have been screened in a wrong order and thus with a slightly different story for the past fifty years.
