SYNOPSIS

The Junk Shop 1965 (31 mins)

'Shot in the very junk shop where author and co-scenarist Bohumil Hrabal worked for seven years, Herz's exuberant Pearls of the Deep episode heralded a singular new talent.' Melbourne Cinémathèque

The Cremator 
1969 (96 mins)

'Karl Kopfrkingl, chillingly portrayed by Rudolf Hrušínský, is a cremator wooed by Nazism in the early days of the German occupation. Production of this adaptation of Ladislav Fuks' novel was halted during the 1968 Soviet invasion, further charging its already potent political undertones with an added horror and complementing Stanislav Milota's virtuoso expressionist cinematography and Zdeněk Liška's indelible score.' Melbourne Cinémathèque
