L.A. Festival Shows Off New Czech Films

Czech this out: The Czech That Film festival, which highlights current films from the republic, will stop by USC from March 27-31. In its fourth year, the touring festival will travel to 19 cities in total.

The Los Angeles festival opens March 27 at 7 p.m. with “Fair Play,” the story of a 19-year-old sprinter aiming for the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles who gets involved with the state-controlled doping program. The director, Andrea Sedlackova, will introduce the 2014 film, with a Q&A to follow the screening.

Organized by the Consulate General of the Czech Republic in Los Angeles, the program also includes “Krásno,” a dark comedy, the politically charged “Burning Bush” and “To See the Sea,” which stars an 11-year-old boy. Closing out the festival on March 31 is the comedy “Icing,” which takes place in a remote village pub during an ice hockey world championship.

All films include English subtitles. Admission is free, but reservations are required at this site.
