Diaries and Communities: Czech Underground Cinema of the 80s




Underground film of the 1980s was an unseen and undiscovered area of Czech film history for many decades. The underground art community produced more than 80 short films shot on Super-8, with numerous directors, production companies and festivals, creating an almost entire small-scale industry parallel to the 80s state film industry. This talk by Martin Blažíček will introduce various documentary strategies and community practices of filmmaking within this area, utilizing examples from some recently restored films.
