How High + Daisies

How High + Daisies

A FILM BY: Jesse Dylan, Věra Chytilová

A Part of Highs and Lows 

From the congested halls of Harvard University, to the stuffiness of bourgeois Czechoslovakia, higher society is about to be overrun by two anarchic duos: one consisting of young hedonistic prank-loving women, the other comprised of weed-growing, vaguely-nihilistic black men. Neither of these couplings will provide any semblance of moral character for its audience, but that's precisely the point. Authoritarianism is in the cross-hairs for both movies, but the ways in which they achieve total comedic anarchy, mirror the eras in which they were filmed, providing each a chance to speak louder than the sum of their parts, their anguished, smoke-choked cries of laughter billowing up into the bright heavens.
