Věra Chytilová

The late, great avant-garde Czech film director Věra Chytilová is often credited as a pioneer of Czech cinema; throughout her almost forty year career her remarkable and inventive approach to filmmaking has produced a body of work which invariably focuses on women rebelling against a male-dominated order. Chytilová is perhaps best known for her neo-dadaist farce Daisies (1966), in which two teenage girls embark on a series of destructive pranks. 

Chytilová was uparalleled in her determination to push against conservatism and fight censorship. While never describing herself as a feminist, her films consistently portray women rebelling against a male-dominated establishment.
