at Pacific Film Archive (PFA) Theater (see times)
(Holka Ferrari Dino). Nemec returns to the Prague Spring and his own Oratorio for Prague with this oblique look at memory, love, and politics. Speaking over and interrupting footage from his remarkable 1969 documentary, Nemec inserts the personal into the political, describing his own actions and thwarted love affairs as Soviet tanks moved to occupy his nation. Here, history is not only the fall of governments and military actions, but a woman, the men who love her, and a desperate dash across the border to keep the documentary footage from being destroyed to ensure the world sees the invasion. Nemec’s love affair may have faded, but his pictures remain.

—Jason Sanders
