Details

From the late, great Czech filmmaker Věra Chytilová, renowned director of Daisies and Fruit of Paradise, comes a controversial and disturbing satire of violence, violation and veterinary practice.

Traps is a daring black comedy about a vet, Lenka, after being raped by two men, uses her particular expertise to exact her revenge…

Chytilová was a filmmaker with a deserved reputation as provocateur and philosopher and TRAPS is an enquiry by both ‘victim’ and filmmaker on the social structures and attitudes which condone such a violation. Tragic and comic, wild and angry, the film presents an unique view of contemporary society where warped morality, greed and twisted masculine attitudes are commonplace and unchallenged.

Available exclusively from the BFI Shop until the 23rd of March
