Dancing into Solitude
Do samoty v tanci, Czech Republic, 2009, 56 min, Digi Beta, Arts and Culture, Music, Politics
A musical and documentary composition about a life of the biggest Czech heroineof the 20th century, an enemy of the Nazi and the communist regimes, Dr. MiladaHorakova, the only woman who was executed during trumped-up trials directed by the felonious communist regime in the 1950's. The film does not only look into a making of an opera production, it also reflects a fate of a brave woman leading an unequal fight with a totalitarian power. The film is built upon an opera staging of the trial, with authentic archive footage of the trial and interviews with creators of the opera.
