The White Dove


Directed by František Vláčil
Czechoslovakia, 1960


In Vláčil’s parable-like debut feature, a wheelchair-bound boy in Prague shoots a homing pigeon for target practice, then, chided by his artist neighbor, nurses the bird back to health. Meanwhile, a girl on the Baltic coast awaits her pet’s return.
