The Making Of

The Making Of

2011 / Czech Republic / 26min

Film is an original reflection on the events of November 17, 1989 as perceived by the Czech society. The film reconstruction culminates in the clash of demonstrators and the Public Security. However, the social surge of those days has become but an empty image. To the extras participating in the event, the revolution game is but an attraction in a time when freedom is taken for granted but rarely taken advantage of.
