Cinematic Inspiration – Daisies(1966)

1966 was a brilliant year in cinema, with all the drugs going around, raging psychedelia-new wave this, new wave that.The crazier the better… this resulted in some crazy directors letting all their creativity loose and creating timeless sources of inspiration.

This Czech masterpiece “Daisies“(original title; Sedmikrasky) is about two teenage girls, both named Marie, who decide that since the world is spoiled they will be spoiled as well; accordingly they embark on a series of destructive pranks in which they consume and destroy the world about them. This freewheeling, madcap feminist farce was immediately banned by the communist government.

Two girls bouncing around in a-line dresses,  one with a daisychain around her head.. this movie is basicaly a crazy moving fashion editorial. so be prepared to be completly confused and weirded out, yet utterly inspired.
