Fašismus po česku
A documentary film about the origins and history of fascism in Czech lands. The filmmakers try to outline different forms of the ideology, while pointing out its current dangers. Today, the ideas that caused unspeakable suffering throughout the 20th century seem to be returning to Czech streets in the shouts and slogans of right-wing extremists. This film sets out to recount some of the basic principles that give rise to fascism and to survey its local varieties, organizations and proponents.
The Dobříš - Paříž axis. 25 years ago, this phrase would be familiar to students of military departments, then a compulsory part of university studies. It reflects the life-long conviction and education of Czechoslovak officers that World War III is inevitable and the camp of peace and socialism would definitely finish with the rotten capitalism. In the form of a fictitious documentary with allusive stage-managed elements and comments of experts, the film will introduce period strategic and operation plans of the Czechoslovak army, moving along the border between the grotesque and the tragic.
There are people among us whose childhood was stolen by the times. Because of their Jewish origin, they were expelled from schools and sport clubs during the war, they were not allowed to enter swimming pools and sports fields, to own a dog or a parrot, all that before the "final solution". All their lives, these now "old children" had to cope with the trauma of the loss of their parents, loneliness and persecution. Fear and anxiety have become part of their life and have been passed on to the next generation. Their children, too, carry the symptoms of persecution.
