Moravian Hellas

  • Czech Republic
Audio Tracks 

The film debut of Karel Vachek, the most important personality in Czech film documentaries and one of the most important names in Czech cinematography as a whole. After the film was shown, the director was not able to shoot anything more for five years. “I shot Moravian Hellas and something happened. I had offended the convictions of the rulers of that time, that the only good art arose from the people. When it became apparent that the “people” is the embodiment of kitsch and shabby deals, the rulers were enraged and for five years I wasn’t allowed near a camera.” (Karel Vachek)
