Boj o děti

director: Linda Kallistová Jablonská
original title: Boj o děti
country: Czech Republic
year: 2021
running time: 26 min.


This documentary film aims to summarize the issue of placing children in institutional care instead of foster care. Compared to the rest of Europe, Czech institutions are still supported, although it has been proven for many years that institutional care does not meet the needs for healthy child development, which brings with it a whole slew of problems. And so, the question remains: why and for what benefit?


Linda Kallistová Jablonská (*1979) was born in Prague. She studied documentary filmmaking at FAMU and her graduate film Left Foot Forward, Right Foot Forward earned her the 2006 Audience Award at Ji.hlava IDFF, the Kristián Critics Award at Febiofest 2007, and the award for Best Documentary at FAMUfest 2006. Her other documentaries include Welcome to North Korea! and Earthlings, who are you voting for?, the latter of which deals with a crew of handicapped filmmakers. Her next film is Doggy Love about the female musher Jana Henychová. She has also shot and been creatively involved with the docuseries Four Buns in the Oven (2013–2018) among many others.
