First up is Martin Šulík's peculiar film entitled Záhrada (The Garden, 1995), billed as a gentle comedy about life in a garden. The list follows with Obchod na korze (Shop on Main Street, 1965), a touching WWII drama starring Jozef Króner; Miloslav Luther's Anjel milosrdenstva (Angel of Mercy, 1993); and Dušan Hanák's Ja milujem, ty miluješ (I Love, You Love, 1980).

The films will be shown at the University of Pittsburgh's Posvar Hall in Room 1501, starting at 14:00. Admission for each show is $5; students are free.
