Bistro Bohem will screen the drama The Spring of Life (Pramen života) on March 20, 2018, at 7 pm. The film, based on the Lebensborn project, follows a young Slavic girl named Gretka who passes a race examination and is groomed for breeding with a Nazi SS officer at a remote sanitarium. Variety film critic Eddie Cockrell calls the film “a dignified, absorbing melodrama that, to its immense credit, dodges the lurid at every turn.” The film was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the AFI Fest and a Czech Lion for best screenplay in 2000. (Director: Milan Cieslar, 2000, 110 min., in Czech, Polish and German with English subtitles)
