The Sun in a Net

Audio Tracks 

This story portrays the emotions arising in two young people who take on a cynical reaction against society in an attempt to hide their insecurities, inexperience and fear of adult life. The screenplay was based on short stories written by Alfonz Bednár, and is considered the beginning of the New Wave movement in Czechoslovak cinema. A traditional linear story is broken up into smaller episodes and motifs. Despite the communist regime’s objections, an Award of Czechoslovak Critics in 1963 helped secure it a release in cinemas.
