History of Jaroslav Šabata  //  Dějiny Jaroslava Šabaty (Orig.)

DIR: Vít Janeček
2007 / Czech Republic / 79 min

Film unavailable :-(

Sorry, this film is no longer available.

The film features the psychologist, politician and journalist Jaroslav Šabata (*1927) who symbolizes half a century of Czech history. The film explains the traces left by left-wing intelligentsia who first served the communist regime (Mr Šabata started giving lectures at the Department of Marxism-Leninism in 1953), then tried to reform it (as an active politician during the Prague Spring of the late 1960s), and later still opposed it (as early as 1971 he was sentenced to six and a half years in prison), eventually to see it collapse and help build a new democratic country.
