Prefab Story

Chytilová’s multilevel portrayal of contemporary life is a blunt and aggressive confrontation with the ‘normalised’ society in which she lived. Set against the background of a high-rise estate, it examines the nature of contemporary morality and the materialist preoccupations of its inhabitants. One of the few genuinely critical works of its time, it received limited release and was denied international exposure.
