Kate, an intelligent and attractive forty-something, longs for marriage. When a friend from her youth whom she remembers fondly contacts her, she is delighted and invites the man to dinner. However Mr Devil is not interested in her heart or soul, and instead the gluttonous man wants simply to indulge in her cooking. Told through Kate’s preposterously exaggerated personal experiences, the film is based on a short story by director Ester Krumbachová. Krumbachová was a key figure of the Czechoslovak New Wave, and worked closely with Vera Chytilova (Daisies, Fruit of Paradise).

The film will be preceded by an extended introduction from film historian and curator Petra Hanakova from the Charles University Prague. Petra specialises in Eastern European Film and Feminist film theory.

This screening will complement CCA's exhibition on the life and work of Ester Krumbachová, running from 11 August - 16 September 2018. More information on the exhibition can be found at the CCA website.
