A Strange Show Business: Normalization, Pop, and Propaganda in Czechoslovakia, 1969–1979
This workshop by Pavel Klusák is a journey into the Normalization-era 1970s, with a focus on that part of popular culture that fulfilled the regime’s propagandistic needs. This chapter of modern Czechoslovak history remains current today as historical experience, warning, and grotesque. The audiovisual archives are presented by music journalist Pavel Klusák.

Ryuichi Sakamoto: CODA
A portrait of a composer who is considered the founder of modern pop music in Japan, and who is also a legend of international film music (The Last Emperor, Little Buddha, The Revenant). We are reminded of the fragility of the world by Sakamoto’s cancer and by the destruction in the wake of the accident at the Fukushima nuclear power plant. The film is both highly personal and very social.
