Didactica Magna: Against the Grain

  • Czech Republic
Audio Tracks 

The film is an insight into a teacher's soul and a contemplation upon his teaching fate. This portrait of a unique, experimental filmmaker and teacher Martin Čihák takes a look at his teaching methods, his meetings with his students at FAMU and at a park where they work with film, or in his studio. He talks about his teaching methods, the school, and the students’ relationship to education and cinema.
