At a village railway station in occupied Czechoslovakia, a bumbling dispatcher's apprentice longs to liberate himself from his virginity. Oblivious to the war and the resistance that surrounds him, this young man embarks on a journey of sexual awakening and self-discovery, encountering a universe of frustration, eroticism, and adventure within his sleepy backwater depot. Wry and tender, Academy Award-winning Closely Watched Trains is a masterpiece of human observation and one of the best-loved films of the Czech New Wave.

Maybe the New Wave's most anarchic entry, Vĕra Chytilov's absurdist farce follows the misadventures of two brash young women. Believing the world to be spoiled, they embark on a series of pranks in which nothing, food, clothes, men, war, is taken seriously. Daisies is an aesthetically and politically adventurous film that's widely considered one of the great works of feminist cinema.
