Recommend this film

The story of our sad hero Eduard Kirchberger begins during the era of the First Czechoslovak Republic. Although he was not an actor, Eduard played different characters throughout his life. Karel Fabián (one of Kirchberger’s pseudonyms) changed with the world around him and did so to such an extent that his own daughters are unable to differ between the real memories of their father and those based just on his books. The director Viera Čakányová decided to express this tragicomedy about escaping both the history and himself through a combination of a documentary and an animated film, an animated documentary. The film was inspired by a short story from the bestselling storybook Gottland by a Polish reporter Mariusz Szczygiel. This project is co-production with czech company nutprodukce (CZ). It has been realized with the support of the Audiovisual Fund and the Czech State Fund of Cinematography.
