Czech Museum of Romani Culture presents silent film from 1923 featuring Roma character
On Thursday, 16 July, the Museum of Romani Culture in Brno will present an extraordinary cultural experience. The museum will screen a unique silent film by Václav Kubásek from 1923, "Bewitching Eyes" (Čarovné oči), accompanied by live music performed by the band The Harmonic Play.
Entry is free. At 19:30 the evening will continued with a concert by The Harmonic Play in the Museum's Beng! Café (or perhaps in the courtyard, weather depending).
The National Film Archive describes the film as follows:
"Robert Tulica, the son of a landowner, falls in love while on vacation in the Tatras with the beautiful Gypsy Zorka and invites her to Prague, where he arranges a governess for her, the widow Majerová. Zorka finds it difficult to abandon the habits of her life of freedom and only her love for Robert keeps her in Prague. After some time Robert introduces Zorka to his father and his brother, Karel. Zorka not only wins over the father, but Karel begins to desire her. She remains on the estate even after Robert returns to Prague, caring for the ill father. Karel then comes to her room at night to bother her and Zorka, in self-defense, strikes him in the head. Karel falls to the ground and Zorka runs to the elderly landowner to confess that she has killed Karel..."
