Prague: day 3 - meeting Vera Chytilova

... dashed back to town (from the national film archives) to met with Vera Chytilova: she, introducing a special screening of Daisies at the FAMU. Her first viewing of the film in more than a decade, & afterwards she spoke for maybe an hour an a half about the film, ethical imperatives for artists, etc. Not huge in physical stature, by any stretch, but advancing years have not diminished her unrepentant feistiness. A peak moment!
