Miserable Prague - Bílá Hora and Ruzyně
The documentary cycle Praha mizerná shows zones of old-time atmosphere that are gradually disappearing, and city outskirts that may not be Prague's best asset but which make Prague what it is today.
The Invention of Beauty
The film reveals suprising facts about the creation and origin of an amateur invention that had a dramatic impact on the development of probably one of the most bizarre social scenes - pop music.
