Café tchèque - New Czech Wave

Let us invite you to the next Café tchèque, a traditional evening intended for everyone who is interested in beauties of Czech language and culture organized by Centre of Czech Studies at Université Libre de Bruxelles and the Czech Centre Brussels. The next edition will be held in the spirit of the Czech classic movies. Visitors and students of all levels of Czech language are welcome!

Over years, the Café tchèque became a regular event not only for students of Czech language from ULB, but for all who wish to practice their skills in speaking Czech in a friendly environment, to play language games and to learn something new in an informal way during the evenings dedicated to the Czech language, the Czech Republic and its regions and Czech culture.

This session will offer an entertainment program dedicated to the Czechoslovak New Wave and also we can look forward to the screening of the movie by Vojtěch Jasný.

The Cat Who Wore Sunglasses (in the original language with French subtitles)

Castellan Oliva watches the everyday life of his small sweet town from the gallery of a tower. From that height, he can afford to keep a tolerant view of the weaknesses and frailties of his fellow-citizen. Robert, a young teacher, is preparing to marry his colleague Julie. Robert invites Oliva to sit as a model in a drawing lesson. The old man tells the children about his life as a sailor and about his first encounter with Diana, the love of his life, and her magical tom-cat. All of a sudden, jolly music sounds from the square, heralding the arrival of a strange circus. To the surprise of both children and adults, there is a magician sitting on the roof of a red car who is almost indiscernible from Oliva, and a beautiful girl named Diana with a tom-cat wearing sunglasses on her lap. At the close of that evening's performance by the magician, Diana takes the sunglasses off her tom-cat and people begin to change colour in front of his green eyes. The unfaithful turn yellow, the liars violet, the thieves and highwaymen grey and those who are in love turn red.

When: 16th April 2018 at 8:30 pm (start of the screening at 9pm)

Where: CINEMATEK, Baron Horta straat 9, Brussels
