Winter Flies will represent Czech Republic at the Oscars

 
We are pleased to let you know that
WINTER FLIES
Directed by Olmo Omerzu
is the Czech Republic's submission
to the 91st Academy Awards - Best Foreign Language Film.
"As accomplished as the filmmaking is, it’s the performances that stay with you, and the two young first-time-actor leads are a revelation." Variety
Winter Flies is a road movie about friendship, adventure and great freedom. The story is about two boys who are not fifteen yet and they travel across the whole republic in a stolen car. The aim of their running away is the feeling of being free and a desire to experience something special.

The film received the award for Best Director in the Official Selection - Competition at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival earlier this summer, before having its International Premiere at Toronto International Film Festival this week.
