How to start the weekend in a better way than with a great movie, in even greater company? Go with your friends to see the movie Landlocked.

Will they ever find common ground again? You will find out on Friday, November 5, from 8 pm at the Kino Pilotů.
Another film tip is the drama Why Not You (Hochwald) from 6 pm in Světozor. The film follows the dancer Maria in a sleepy Tyrolean small town. The picturesque idyll is disturbed by an attack in a gay club, during which his friend dies. Evi Romen's directorial debut sensitively deals with a difficult and unfortunately highly discussed topic.
The First Death of Joana (A Primeira Morte de Joana) takes you into the world of a thirteen-year-old girl who with her best friend searches for the reason why her favorite great-aunt lived alone and never had a boyfriend.
