Czechoslovak West Side Story
Join us for our FIRST BIRTHDAY PARTY! To celebrate one year of making Central European cinema accessible to Londoners, we are screening the “Czechoslovak West Side Story” – popular musical The Hop Pickers / Starci na chmelu (1964).
Experience cinematic history with Velvet 4 Film and watch the first ever Czechoslovak on-screen musical! Charming student Hanka and her friends are spending summer at a hop brigade where Honza and Philip start fighting for her attention. Romance unfolds in the attic of the student house, with the help of iconic soundtrack full of rock´n´roll and bossanova tunes. Inspired by West Side Story, but entirely Czechoslovak in storyline!
