EROTIKON (Czechoslovakia, 1929)
Sunday, July 12
Directed by Gustav Machaty (Czechoslovakia, 1929)
Cast: Karel Schleichert, Ita Rina, Olaf Fjord
Remarkably frank for any era, EROTIKON is drenched in a ripe sensuality that flows freely from every frame. A young woman is seduced and abandoned by a stranger. What happens next appears to follow the ages-old dictate of guilt, humiliation, and punishment but director Gustav Machat has something far more adult up his sleeve. A genuine scorcher from Czechoslovakia.
With a reader of the original Czech and English intertitles.
Preceded by short BARBER'S QUEER CUSTOMER (Biograph, 1900)
