This film and video series has been organized by word of mouth. Curated and projected in two
countries, the net was barely thrown into the water and what has come back is beautiful and, in
many cases, under the radar.

Cultural exchange in a rather subtle form: in the documentary program, we see snapshots that
tell more in a few minutes than long form docs may ever expound. Extensive translation has
not been feasible, so that the narrative program is virtually back to the days of silents, and not
lacking in storytelling because of it. Each of the "experimental" programs carries its own
direction in the adventure of filmmaking, either through techniques, vision, or attention to
the process itself.

The New York screening group, Robert Beck Memorial Cinema, rounds out the series with their
picks from the New York experimental film and video community.

The following six programs of short films and videos will be screened in the Czech Republic on
six consecutive Sunday evenings from September 14 through October 19, curated by
Pam Kray
. The organization, CESTA, will present the series in Tábor, Czech Republic. Anthology Film Archives is re-screening the programs in New York November 14 - 16, 2003.

The series is held in cooperation with the Czech Center New York.
Thank you to Petra Podláhova for her tireless assistance with translations.
