Wasteland (Pustina, 2016)
8 Episode Movie Marathon
A movie marathon as a part of our SKODA Czech Film Festival in Queenstown.
The highly rewarded "Pustina" (Wasteland) 8-episode mini-series with Jaroslav Dušek present!
The series stars Zuzana Stivinova as the mayor of a small Czech town which is being bought up and razed by a coal mining company, leading to conflict between residents who want to preserve their traditional life and those who want to take the money and build a better life elsewhere. When the mayor's daughter disappears, however, what appears to be an attempt to silence her opposition to the coal mines may in fact reveal even deeper layers of political intrigue.
Winner of the Czech Lion Award for Best Television Drama Series will be screening as a full-day movie MARATHON with 8x 1hour-long episodes and intermissions, where Jaroslav Dušek will share his stories with the audience...
