Film: Oscar-Winning Director Jiri Menzel Presenting New Film "Don Juans"

On September 15, at 5 pm, the AFI Silver Theater and Cultural Center will screen Jiri Menzel's new film Don Juans (Donsajni). The latest film from this Czech New Wave legend is a comedy about the intersection of life and art. When a small-town opera company mounts a production of Mozart's Don Giovanni, passions run high both on stage and behind the scenes. Menzel made a memorable appearance at a sold-out screening of I Served the King of England during the 2007 AFI European Union Film Showcase; don't miss this chance to see the auteur present his latest film. A Q&A with the director follows the screening.
