Summary/Abstract: The aim of the article is to confront the historical Czechoslovak New Wave and the issue of free time seen through various practices of celebration, as well as examples of demonstrations and body regimes that are part of them. The socialist leisure class spends free time surrounded by nature, devoting itself to consumption (also readable in the narrative structure plan), ostentatiously escaping into private life. Dominant practices often duplicate well recognized discipline techniques. In this approach, cinema exists primarily as a mirror of everyday life practices in which the critical readings of Michel Foucault and Vaclav Havel are viewed.
