Lethal Injection Instead of Truth
Smrtící injekce místo pravdy , Czech Republic, 2010, 57 min, HD, Current Affairs, Politics, Society
Back in 1989, we were ringing our keys at public squares in the name of truth and love that would prevail over lies and hate. Twenty years later, we often have feelings of futility, however, we still think that we have managed to uncover at least a little bit of the recent past. Many a thing yes, no doubt; nevertheless, horrifying witness accounts have emerged recently, telling about the life stories of people who tried to lift the curtain on the past regime's atrocities. An investigator of the office for the documentation and investigation of the crimes of communism was researching the circumstances of suspicious explosions in the 1990. She got pretty near, however, she got infected with a strange disease. Nobody knew what was going on; it was due to the courage of her doctor that she was proved to have been poisoned by cadmium and accidentally saved. At the next banal hospitalization, a would-be doctor gave her an injection that nearly killed her. The other stories in the film, too, tell about the sticky fingers of the regime's power that is still latently present.
