A Hopeful Business

director: Natálie Císařovská
original title: Byznys s nadějí
country: Czech Republic
year: 2023
running time: 26 min.


Freezing eggs today allows women to delay the ticking of the biological clock. In the Czech Republic, we already have almost fifty centres where these procedures are carried out. Moreover, after the pandemic wave, the number of women who have undergone this procedure has multiplied. It is therefore currently an unmissable demographic phenomenon that is making a significant contribution to population growth. In the long term, however, the statistics do not inspire much optimism.


The director Natálie Císařovská graduated in History at the Faculty of Arts of Charles University and in Documentary Directing at the Film and Television Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts (FAMU). As a director, she focuses on documentary films with current social issues.
