Lemonade Joe


This screening has been canceled due to rain, and has been rescheduled for August 29.


Dir.Oldrich Lipský. 1964, 84 mins. Czech New Wave political satire meets Hollywood westerns and musicals in the raucous Lemonade Joe, the story of a yellow-clad cowboy with a good-natured grin and an unquenchable thirst for justice and Kolaloka lemonade (Joe also happens to be a traveling salesman for the brand). This silly and sharp comedy became an international cult favorite, and one of the earliest and most original western genre spoofs. (Not rated)

Presented with support from the Czech Center New York
