Blurring the borders between fact and fiction, heroism and stupidity, Velvet Terrorists is a film about minor and foiled terrorist plots against the Czechoslovak communist regime. The film focuses on three protagonists, whose tragicomic tales of resistance and resilience of human spirit celebrate small rebellious acts that forever changed their lives.

In Czech and Slovak 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.
