THE 1966 film "Daisies," directed by Vera Chytilova, created quite the stir with its vivid surrealist imagery, nonlinear plot and feminist message. The film follows two mischievous women, both named Marie, who repeatedly defy authority.
Banned from theaters by the Communist party of the time, the film comes from a place of political turbulence. It's an anarchist statement that, in some ways, transmits the political attitude of the Czechoslovakian people in the late '60s.
