CINEMA AND GALLERY EUROPEAN HOUSE
We invite you to the European House (Jungmannova 24, Praha 1) on Wednesday 11. 4. at 7 pm. The screening of the film The Kidnapping of Michel Houellebecq is for free.
Michel Houellebecq is a well-known literary provocateur, cynic and pessimist. For some, his books are mere dross, for others, they are biting satires beating at the discord and nihilism of modern society. In September of 2011, news came out that the author had been kidnapped. By whom and to what end it was not clear. Had the crime been planned, or had the author, himself, chosen to vanish? Even after reappearing, Houellebecq has never given a satisfactory explanation. The Kidnapping of Michel Houellebecq is an original reconstruction of events, a game with audiences and intentional provocation all rolled into one – not unlike his books – starring Michel Houellebecq.
An exhibition of festival posters entitled “25 YEARS WITH EUROPEAN FILM” is organized by the European House in Prague as well. If you have a walk along the Jungmannova street from March 7th to April 12th, you can enjoy the bold, funny poster designs inviting to the cinema.
