Digitally restored version of Vojtěch Jasný’s The Cassandra Cat screened at Cannes

A digitally restored version of the 1963 Czechoslovak film The Cassandra Cat or Až přijde kocour by director Vojtěch Jasný was screened at the Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday evening.

The legendary modern fairy tale premiered at the French festival nearly 60 years ago, winning the Special Jury Prize along with two other awards.

The film was restored by the Czech National Film Archive in cooperation with L'Immagine Ritrovata laboratory in Bologna and in partnership with the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival.
