Tatra Banka Cinema to Present Kubrick’s Cult Horror Film and the Banned Coach to Vienna

Once again, Art Film Fest will include an unconventional screening space – the Tatra Banka Tented Cinema, located in Trenčianske Teplice’s Park.  Over the course of the festival, as many as forty films will be screened there.  Already on the first day of the festival, an adaptation of a classic of world literature awaits audiences – Volker Schlöndorff’s Swann in Love, based on the first volume of Proust’s In Search of Lost Time.  This sensual romantic drama will be personally presented by its star, the popular British actor Jeremy Irons. Art Film Fest’s organizers have also expanded the festival program to include Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 cult horror film The Shining, which is among the best in its genre and has yet to be shown in Slovak cinemas.  Kubrick’s horror film, based on the Stephen King novel of the same name, will be presented by its producer, Jan Harlan, at the Tatra Banka Cinema on 22 June. Another surely interesting addition to the Tatra Banka Cinema’s programme will be a screening of the Czechoslovak war drama Coach to Vienna, from director Karel Kachyňa.  The film’s screenplay was written by Karel Kachyňa in cooperation with Jan Procházka, based on the book of the same name.  The film, whose plot is played out in South Moravia immediately after the end of the Second World War, was long banned.  It will be personally presented in Trenčianske Teplice by actor Jaromír Hanzlík.
