21st September THE RATCATCHER; 29th September BROTHER OF SLEEP
21st SEPTEMBER FROM 7 PM IN THE MAIN HALL
One of the greatest works of 20th century is based on an old Saxon legend and still provokes too many questions and interpretations. Is the character of the ratcatcher friend or foe? Viktor Dyk makes his protagonist encounter all types of society. And then makes him confront his own deeds. A fascinating story revealing the depths of strong individualism and orderly being. Looking up to the sky may heal a soul but may also break a neck.
29th SEPTEMBER FROM 7 PM IN THE MAIN HALL
Breathtaking love story about Johannes Elias Alder, a boy with exceptional musical talent, and his cousin Elsbeth. An extraordinaryness is suspicious in a remote village. Nobody cares about a kid with greater talent than Mozart in the cruel conditions. Nobody even notices the genius in him - except for his friends Petr and Elsbeth. More attention is given to his physical handicap. Who's the boy with yellow eyes?
Elias sees the sounds, enters into them, hears distant heartbeats and ancient sins. He can convert all of it into music - literally ethereal music. That's the reason why God is not done with him. God is not done with the villige which is time to time cleansed by fire.
