Two young female office workers hit the town on a Saturday night and find Prague’s exuberant nightlife not to be without peril. Prior to the notoriety of 1933’s Ecstasy, Machatý’s brilliant first talkie, scripted with leading avant-gardist Vítězslav Nezval, was among the first to employ sound in a manner contrapuntal, rather than subservient, to the image. With set design by Alexander Hammid.
Digital restoration and digital print courtesy of the National Film Archive in Prague. From Saturday to Sunday is preceded by Prague in the Glow of Lights (Svatopluk Innemann, 1928. 22 minutes) and is co-presented with the Melbourne Cinémathèque.
