Travel Tip: Pop Culture and Cinema in England

LONDON  •  Cinema 1  •  Ongoing

Erotikon is a landmark in Czech cinema that explores the moral consequences of a night of unbridled passion between a Prague playboy who stays the night after missing a train, and a provincial stationmaster's daughter who becomes pregnant.

Abandoned by the philanderer, she marries another man, but still dreams of the passion she experienced with her former lover.

Recently restored by the Czech National Film Archive, Erotikon is the forerunner to director Gustav Machatý's Ecstasy, (which starred the young Hedy Lamarr) and a landmark in European silent film.

Featuring Ita Rina, Oleg Fjord and Luiji Serventi.

Czechoslovakia 1929 Dir. Gustav Machatý 85 min.

Accompanied by conductor Mario Klemens and members of the Prague Symphony Orchestra performing music by composer Jan Klusak.
