Capping off LIFF 2017’s mini-retrospective of work by Jan Němec, master provocateur of the Czech New Wave, is his final film, The Wolf from Royal Vineyard Street. A fitting epitaph (Němec passed away in 2016 just a day before shooting wrapped) the film is a typically uncompromising, raucous and darkly comic retelling of key events from the director’s own life. The Wolf from Royal Vineyard Street will screen alongside Oratorio for Prague, Němec’s striking short film documenting the Soviet occupation of Czechoslovakia in 1968.

Presented as part of a selection of Jan Němec films in partnership with the Czech Centre in London. The selection also includes: Diamonds of the Night & Loaf of Bread, and The Party and the Guests & Mother and Son.
