27 January 2018.- The 2017 Czech Film Critics’ Awards were announced at a ceremony today at Prague’s Archa Theatre, and broadcast live on Czech Television. The Czech-Slovak drama Filthy (Špína) won best picture, with the film’s director Tereza Nvotová named best newcomer. The dramedy Ice Mother (Bába z ledu) also won two awards, with best screenwriter going to Bohdan Sláma and best actress to Zuzana Kronerová. Václav Kadrnka was named best director for Little Crusader (Křižáček).

 

Filthy tells the story of Lena, a seventeen-year-old struggling to overcome a brutal rape. Devastated, she goes into her shell, attempts to kill herself, and ends up in a mental health facility. Czech critics selected the picture’s first-time director Nvotová as newcomer of the year, and deemed Filthy the best locally produced, theatrically released film of 2017.

 

Václav Kadrnka was named best director for the spiritual Little Crusader – a loose adaptation of a work by the 19th century Czech poet Jaroslav Vrchlický – about a father searching for his son. Karen Roden won best actor for The Prominent Patient (Masaryk), while Zuzana Kronerová picked up the best actress award for Ice Mother, which was written and directed by Bohdan Sláma, who also won an award for his screenplay.

 

This year’s OFFSCREEN Award was given to director Apolena Rychlíková’s The Limits of Work (Hranice práce), a documentary examining some of the worst paid jobs in the Czech Republic, which was first broadcast on Czech Television as a part of the renowned Czech Journal series. Best Documentary went to Slovak director Miro Remo’s This Is Not Me (Richard Müller: Nepoznaný). The Best Audiovisual Achievement award was handed to 8 Heads of Madness (8 hlav šílenství), an unconventional portrait of the Russian poet Anna Barkova.

 

The Czech Film Critics’ Awards are organized by the Association of Czech Film Critics, with the generous support of principal partners innogy, Czech Television, the State Cinematography Fund, and the Czech Ministry of Culture; and additional partners Archa Theatre, Moët & Chandon, and Mowshe.
