Wohnmaschinen (Machines for Living) Film Series: Panelstory aneb jak se rodí sídliště (Prefab Story)studio im HOCHHAUS
Věra Chytilová’s “Panelstory” aneb jak se rodí sídliště – A History of Walls or How Housing Estates are Born” (ČSSR 1979/1981, 100 min, Czech with English subtitles) was created in the period of “normalisation” which followed the Soviet invasion of 1968. Chytilová’s radical imagery—more fragmented than episodic—shows a single day in a housing estate still under construction.
