Vera Chytilova, one of the leading directors of the Czech New Wave during the 1960s, has died at the age of 85. Her film "Daisies" (1966) was spotlighted in Mark Cousins' documentary "The Story of Film: An Odyssey," which aired last fall on Turner Classic Movies. TCM presented "Daisies," which was controversial in Chytilov?'s Soviet-dominated country when it was released, during the early morning hours of October 22, 2013 (Eastern Daylight Time).

Yes, thank you. There clearly hasn't been enough comment on Chytilova's work. I hope TCM takes the opportunity to rescreen Daisies. And if anyone can find interesting obituaries they should post them here. Here's one from the AV Video Club: http://www.avclub.com/article/rip-czech-director-vera-chytilova-202115 Here's the New York Times obituary: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/03/23/nyregion/vera-chytilova-dies-at-85-made-daring-czech-films.html?_r=0

 

And there's a more informative one from the Guardian: http://www.theguardian.com/film/2014/mar/14/vera-chytilova
