I'll second the call for Watkins' The Freethinker
, and add Edvard Munch
(both cuts) to that too please.
Also, I'd love to see the following from Second Run (or, hell, even MoC):
Kinoautomat: One Man and His House
First screened at Expo 67 in Montreal, Kinoautomat is a remarkable project that is widely acknowledged as the first ever interactive cinema system. Considered to be the brainchild of director Raduz Cincera, the project was created by a talented ensemble of Czech New Wave film-makers, including Pavel Jurácek. One Man and His House centres around the hapless Mr Novak (played by Miroslav Hornicek), who finds himself caught up in various situations which represent moral dilemmas. In a specially constructed 'voting cinema', the audience members could alter the trajectory of the film at key intersections by pressing red and green buttons on their seats, the majority vote informing the projection control room. As an integral part of the original experience, Hornicek himself would act out a moderating role, providing a human interface to the film's branching structure. After Montreal, the system was set up again at Expo 68 in San Antonio and also had a run at a Prague theatre in 1971, then was presented for the last time at Expo 74 in Spokane. Recently, interactive film artist Chris Hales has researched and revived the project, and as a result we are excited to be able to present this first production of Kinoautomat for 31 years! Presented in association with the Czech Centre. Tomorrow I'll Wake Up and Spill Hot Tea Over Myself
, a supposedly excellent pitch-black Czech comedy from 1977 concerning time travel, identical twins, and the resurrection of Hitler. Yellen
An epic drama drawing on Bambara culture, which echoes mythic legends. A hero undergoes ordeals that allow him to renovate a decaying society.
