A travelling circus and its magical feline mascot arrive in a provincial Czech town, unleashing mayhem as they expose the virtues, vices and desires of its unruly inhabitants. Part modern fairy tale, part colourful political metaphor, The Cassandra Cat (also known as When the Cat Comes) is a unique and glorious comic fantasy.
Newly restored, Vojtech Jasný's Cannes award-winner leans into surreal satire and is one of the most visually inventive and uninhibited films of the Czechoslovak New Wave.
"A gloriously goofy fairy tale...Jasný always keeps the tone light to the point of levitating. A treat." - Time Out
