...Wish the Truth for All
...a pravdy každému přejte, Czech Republic, 2003, 53 min, Digi Beta
In the chain of stories that represents for us history, what is truth and what is legend? Nepomuk region in south Bohemia, Prague, the Gniezdno, Poland... Retracing the steps of St Vojtěch, the violently terminated life of Czech Saint John of Nepomuk, the Green Mountain Castle, where there was found in the early 19th century a manuscript whose authenticity has been a surce of disputes between historians and politicians and the unhappy fate of its reputed author Josef Linda - these are the themes of the unique ideas of poet, historian and diplomat Jiří Gruši on Czech history.
