Old Shatterhand

Prisel k nam, Cehoslovacia, 12 min., 1966
regia: Dusan Hanak

Documentar alb-negru ce prezinta cu mult umor viata in Cehoslovacia in anii 60‘. Datorita ironiei sale si a caracterului critic a ajuns pe lista neagra si ani in sir nu a fost difuzat.


Zmatek, Cehoslovacia, 35 min., 1990
regia: Evald Schorm

Inainte, in timpul si ulterior semnarii Pactului de la Varsovia trupe au invadat Cehoslovacia. Asa reiese din filmarile unui tanar aflat sub nici un fel de constrangeri. Editarea a fost ulterior supravgeheata de Evald Schorm, a carui autoritate morala a fost recunoscuta de tanara generatie. Un discurs elocvent in favoarea tarii sale.

Jan 69

1969, Cehoslovacia, 8 min., 2002
regia: Stanislav Milota

O relatare coplesitoare a atmosferei din Praga dupa moartea lui Jan Palach. Filmarile ample cu multimile pregatindu-se sa ii aduca ultimele omagii si cu sutele de coroane cu care au acoperit curtea complexului universitar Carolinum nu au nevoie de comentarii.


Movies dedicated to the events that so much influenced history of both Czechoslovakia and Romania…
The screenings will be accompanied by introductions to each movie and a discussion with Mr Petr Slintak, historian from The Institute for the Study of Totalitarian Regimes, Prague (in English).

Old Shatterhand  
Black & white documentary which humorously depicts life in Cehoslovacia in the 60’s. Due to the films’ strong critical and ironic component it was for a long time subject of censorship.

Before, during and after Warsaw Pact troops invaded Czechoslovakia, as filmed by young camera hands in total freedom.  The editing was later supervised by director Evald Schorm, whose moral authority was acknowledged by the new generation of film-makers.  This film is an eloquent oratorio for his country.

Jan 69
A  compelling record of the atmosphere in Prague following the death of Jan Palach. Wide–angled shots of crowds on their way to pay their final respects to a young man who burned himself to death and the hundreds of wreaths with which grieving Czechs covered the courtyard in front of Prague’s Carolinum need no commentary.
