Introduction by Michal Bregant

Modernist photographer Alexander Hackenschmied and avant-garde director Gustav Machatý were two of the celebrated artists involved in the making of this rediscovered masterpiece of the early sound period. Tempted to join a night out on the town, an innocent clerk falls into a lecherous trap, dodges unwanted advances, then finds a nice, honest man in a working-class bar. Before Monday rolls around, though, she has to face another close call. (Gustav Machatý, 1931, subtitles, 69 minutes)
