Matchbox Cineclub
Weird Weekend | Wolf's Hole

Sun 1 September 2019

10 teens are chosen to take part in a special skiing workshop in the mountains, though 11 arrive. A massive avalanche occurs and the ski-lodge is cut off from outside contact. With limited supplies, the instructors strongly advise that the youths work together to make do…or choose someone to leave.

A late classic from the director of Daisies, and a rare horror, as yet unreleased in the UK. Here, Chytilová exposes the mechanisms by which totalitarian regimes manipulate the populace. A snowy counterpoint to the optimism of her early work, Wolf's Hole holds many surprises.

Wolf’s Hole (Věra Chytilová, 1987) 1hr 32m
This screening will be captioned for the deaf and hard of hearing.
