Central Europe Film Series: I, Olga Hepnarová

April 4, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Introduction by Chad Bryant (History, UNC-Chapel Hill)

A complex portrait of alienation and loneliness, this meticulously composed film is based on the true story of Olga Hepnarová, the last woman to be executed in the former Czechoslovakia. Desperate to break free from the conservative social milieu and strict sexual conventions of the 1970s, Olga resorts to a gruesome and carefully planned revenge against the society.

In Czech with English subtitles.






All screenings are free and open the public. Co-sponsored by the Center for Slavic, Eurasian, and East European Studies; Department of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures; and Global Cinema Studies at UNC. The series is made possible in part by the Democratization Processes in Eastern Europe and Beyond Fund. Please direct all inquiries to the main organizer Leah Valtin-Erwin (
