Great news everyone! Libor Nemeskal’s documentary, The Czech Film Avant-Garde (2015) is now available online – for free! The work is presented in 7 episodes each of them focusing on a specific filmmaker or a significant trend of the Czech avant-garde film.
“The Czech film avant-garde. A unique artistic direction of the 1920s and 1930s with great persons of Czech culture like Vítězslav Nezval, Jaroslav Seifert, Alexander Hackenschmied, Jan Kučera and many others being mentioned. However, is it really a forgotten landmark of the Czech cinematography or an artificial construct, created subsequently by film history?”
