Miloš Zeman - one politician's obituary

2008 / Czech Republic / 51min

"As a cynic, I say that when I die, television channels will appreciate the film" said Miloš Zeman as the documentary was being made. The film features a man who made Czech social democracy into a genuine political power, helped the party win the general election, only to fail to gain his own party's full support in the presidential election several years later. He then left active political life, later leaving the party. He was now willing to talk openly in a documentary he calls his own obituary. But the question is whether he is already to be considered "political corpse".
