Recommend this film

This portrait of the actor and stage director emerged out of the cooperation of Otomar Krejča on the previous film by Radim Procházka Naše lípa (Our Linden). In it Krejča appears in the role of the director and the character of the Miller in Jirásek's Lantern and the time spent together was transformed into a film about him. _ The title of the film refers to the milestone experiences in Krejča's life and at the same time to Divadlo za branou, the theatre where he was artistic director. Given the importance of that theatre, his story is at once the story of Czech art and Czech society from the mid-20th century to date. _ The film is composed out of situations drawn from the director's life, into which extracts from Krejča's theatre and film work are cut. These lead to questions relating to the more ambiguous stages in his life, such as the period of the 1950s and Krejča's political engagement at that time. _ Krejča wages a battle with the documentarist and a question comes to hang over the film - to what extent does the director direct his own life and what has remained unsaid? In the end he objects to how the documentary has been conceived and hesitates to consent to its public release. _ The film's director throughout filming approached Krejča as openly as possible, and during a year of meetings only rarely was he not informed about what was going to be filmed. One exception is the moment where an unprepared Krejča is confronted with extracts from the file maintained on him by the state secret service under the previous regime.

“My work has two strands: the first one deals with direct political images of violence, aggression and protest, mostly in Israeli-Palestinian context. It’s critique of news media, researching the complex, both realistic and surrealistic aspects of these images. The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.
