A girl on the verge of womanhood finds herself in a sensual fantasyland of vampires, witchcraft, and other threats in this eerie and mystical movie daydream. Valerie and Her Week of Wonders serves up an endlessly looping, nonlinear fairy tale, set in a quasi-medieval landscape. Ravishingly shot, enchantingly scored, and spilling over with surreal fancies, this enticing phantasmagoria from director Jaromil Jires is among the most beautiful oddities of the Czechoslovak New Wave.

  • Three early shorts by director Jaromil Jires: Uncle (1959), Footprints (1960), and The Hall of Lost Steps (1960)
  • New interview with Czechoslovak film scholar Peter Hames
  • Interviews from 2006 with actors Jaroslava Schallerová and Jan Klusák
  • Alternate 2007 psych-folk soundtrack to the film by the Valerie Project, and a new video piece on the music's origins
