Don’t miss this relentless and hilarious musical send-up of the American Western written by Brdečka—one of the most popular works in Czech film history. Lemonade Joe follows a soft drink–swigging gunfighter as he tries to steer the sinful residents of Arizona’s Stetson City away from alcohol and toward the health benefits offered in Kolaloka (a parody of Coca Cola). The satire was adapted from various versions of the character created by Brdečka across media, including print, radio, and the theater. (99 mins., DCP)
Program organized by Limonádový Joe s.r.o. in partnership with Czech Centres, produced by Comeback Company. Film courtesy of the Czech National Film Archive, Krátký Film Praha a.s., and Rembrandt Films.
