Film unavailable :-(

Sorry, this film is no longer available.

This documentary film pays tribute to Elo Havetta (1838-1975), a solitary director, an author of only two feature films (Celebration in the Botanical Garden, and Wild Lilies) that belong to the best Slovak cinema. At their time they brought playfulness and spontaneity, on which the authors of the documentary base their happening - a journey to the director s grave in the search for his legacy.
