The AFI Silver Theatre and Cultural Center will present the US premiere of the film WINTER FLIES (Vsechno bude) on December 16 at 11:05 am, as well as a second screening of the film on December 18, at 7:15 pm, as part of the AFI European Union Film Showcase.

Synopsis: In the dead of winter, naïve and energetic Heduš runs into his stoic pal Mára and convinces him to go on a road trip to nowhere in a stolen Audi. Told from an interrogation room where Mára is recounting their misadventures, this coming-of-age, comedic road movie sees two first-time actors knock it out of the park. Combining first loves, light drinking and even a thrilling dog rescue, this lively romp revels in irresponsibility and gentle mayhem with an energetic camera and a playful score. #AFIfilmEU, #CzechFilm
