In 1947, the surrealist artist Alice Rahon created her only film The Magician, yet the film got lost before its completion. After the Magician re-narrates the lost film and explores circumstances of its production. The project After the Magician is produced by Perfilm, co-produced by UMPRUM, and was supported by the Czech Film Fund and the Zlín Film Talent.

The screening is followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Lea Petrikova.
