"Beautiful."-Village Voice

A film of remarkable visuial splendor and great humanism, The White Dove is a timeless tale of hope and grace.

A white carrier pigeon loses its way when it tries to fly home to the Baltic coast, where a young girl anxiously awaits it. Lost, tired, and ill, the bird lands in Prague. It is rescued by an artist and then gradually brought back to health by a small, frail boy. People's lives are changed forever by their encounter with the bird, which provides the heart of this moving story, told in rich black and white photography and striking visual detail. Ultimately uplifting, the film is a metaphor for freedom.

It's unforgettable beauty and distinct style earned the film awards and acclaim at film festivals in Venice, Cannes, M ontevideo, and Prades. The White Dove is the debut feature of Frantisek Vlacil, a master of poetic imagery and the director of the top-ranked Czech film of all time, Marteka Lazarova.
