The Unbearable Lightness of Being – Uprising '68 Screening
As part of Eastern Bloc Songs: Party, Pop and Politics and #Uprising68 we are happy to invite You for the screening of Philip Kaufman’s ‘The Unbearable Lightness of Being’ based on the Milos Kudera’s famous novel which action happens during the events of Prague Spring in 1968.
By the series of ‘Uprising The Spirit of ’68’ we want to celebrate the round 50th anniversary of Prague Spring 1968 – one of the major political and cultural events happening all over XXth century Europe. After a few months of liberalization in Czechoslovakia during the spring of 1968, Soviet Union and other members of the Warsaw Pact invaded the country to stop the reforms and start occupation. That period of time, which combined political freedom and oppression triggered interesting cultural vibe of politically engaged art.
