Film Screening of "The Fireman's Ball" at the National Gallery of Art, with Intro by Michael Bregant
1:00pm - 2:15pm
Free
As part of the film series Miloš Forman: Lives of an Artist
(Horí, má panenko, 1967, 35 mm, Czech with subtitles, 71 minutes)
"A provincial fire department's annual ball erupts in mayhem—raffle prizes are pilfered, the beauty pageant goes awry, the contestants' carousing fathers drink too much—and outside in the town, a house burns down. For a humorously unassuming political allegory, The Fireman's Ball suffered one of the most unusual fates in film history. Not only was the president of Czechoslovakia outraged by its satirical tone, but thousands of volunteer firemen threatened to strike after it opened. Ultimately, the film was banned."
