We have the pleasure of inviting you to a comic book exhibition within the 19th ¿Underground/Independent? Festival!
Marek Rubec: Jarmil (Czech Republic)
March 8th, 2019, 6 PM
Forum cinema, 5 Legionowa Street
The world is falling apart before our consumption-closed eyes, even in a small Czech town. Supermarket, skateboard, brews, blazin’, hamburgers, tatoos, pizza, selfie. How can we live without this? Jarmil won’t tell you the answer.
Jarmil is fast poetry and fast day-to-day life, in a hurry to survive.
Jarmil is a cocktail of waiting around and racing around.
Now we only remember the hangovers.
