There are no current or future screenings planned for this film.

A lascivious vampire yearning for lost youth, a lecherous priest looking to exploit it, and impish denizens parade in and out of this nonlinear tale, culminating in a bacchanal of swelling passions as the sweet pulp of desire is first tasted in this surreal fantasy. Wanton dreams flirt with grotesque nightmares in this indulgent, Freudian fairy tale of girlhood and libidinal urges. From Czech New Wave director Jamoril Jireš comes VALERIE AND HER WEEK OF WONDERS, a lyrical exploration of sexual awakening, at once enchanting daydream and gothic nightmare. A timeless, menacing journey – delicate as lace.

AFS Cinema is turning one so we’re celebrating all month long!
