The screening of The Trial (2018) in Evald Cinema in Prague (September 17, 2019 from 5 PM)
Tuesday September 10, 2019, 5 PM, Komorní kino Evald, Národní 28, 111 21, Prague 1
Franz Kafka’s classic novel reset in contemporary Tokyo. Q&A with Director John Williams and film publicist Antonín Tesař after the screening. A darkly comic mystery meets absurdist satire of Japanese bureaucracy. Kafka’s novel is perhaps more valid today than it ever was. In the so-called “post-truth” age the story of a man who wakes to find himself under arrest for an unspecified crime has a new resonance. The film preserves Kafka’s more universal existential themes, whilst also satirizing Japanese bureaucracy and political drift to the right.
Tickets: 70 CZK available at Komorní kino Evald, Národní 28, 111 21 Praha 1
