PUBLIC SCANDAL
Uherske Hradiste, Rep. Ceha, 2007,  57 min.
Regie: Kristina Vlachova
VO ceha / Subtitrari in engleza

Proiectele Kristinei Vlachova au ca centru de interes prizonierii politici. Inca din 1994 ea urmareste desfasurarea cazului Uherske Hradiste.
Din 1950 pana la sfarsitul anilor 1960 prizonierii politici din regiunea Moraviei au fost torturati in puscaria locala de catre unii din cei mai violenti interogatori din fosta Cehoslovacie. Numeroase relatari ale martorilor indica faptul ca s-au folosit atat torturi fizice, cat si mentale, printre care si torturarea prin socuri electrice. Dupa decenii de investigatii singurul rezultat al procesului a fost gratierea primului secretar al politiei secrete, Vladimir Zavadilík, singurul dintre cei trei acuzati care a aparut la procese. Ceilalti doi, Alois Grebenicek si Ludvik Hlavacka, n-au fost niciodata chemati in instanta din cauza starii lor de sanatate instabile.
In interviurile cu avocati, prim-ministrii ai justitiei, prizonieri si oameni simpli participati la serbarile de “1 Mai”, regizorul cauta motivele pentru care acuzatii raman nepedepsiti si nici nu sunt blamati public.
“In ziua de azi nu este vorba de punerea acestor batrani dupa gratii”, afirma in documentar, Vlasta Parkanova, prim-ministrul ceh al justitiei, “Este vorba despre recunoasterea vinovatiei”

Filmul a castigat premiul anual ” FITES Trilobit”

ENGLISH VERSION

Kristina Vlachova’s work is devoted primarily to Czech political prisoners. Since 1994, she has followed events surrounding the Uherske Hradiste case.
From the 1950s to the end of the 1960s, political prisoners from the Moravian region were imprisoned and tortured in the local jail. A group of interrogators from Uherske Hradiste was one of the most brutal in the country. Numerous witness accounts indicate that physical and mental coercion was used, which even included torture using electric shocks. After decades of investigation, the only outcome is a pardon for the former secret police investigator Vladimir Zavadilik, who was the only one of the three main people accused to appear before the courts. The other two, Alois Grebenicek and Ludvik Hlavacka, never stood trial because of their poor health.

In interviews with lawyers, former justice ministers and prisoners as well as participants in Mayday celebrations, the director looks at the reasons why the accused go unpunished and their guilt is not publicly acknowledged. “Today, it’s not about putting these old men behind bars,” says Vlasta Parkanova, former chzech minister of justice in the documentary. “It’s about recognising their guilt”.

The film won the annual FITES Trilobit award.
