Bohdan Slama's ICE MOTHER is a warm and sensitive drama about late-life love and second chances. Hana, 67-year-old mother and grandmother, has catered to her two grown sons for years.  One day, after picking up her grandson at school, she stops alongside the river to watch some ice swimmers. When a man named Brona waves in distress, she rushes into the water to help. Her dip into the icy water just might change her life forever. 

Submitted as the Czech entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 90th Academy Awards.  Winner of 6 Czech Lions including Best Film and Best Director. ICE MOTHER received the award for Best Screenplay in an International Narrative at the 2017  Tribeca Film Festival.
