Doctors: The Czechs are Inventive

director: Bára Kopecká
original title: Doktoři: Český národ je vynalézavý
country: Czech Republic
year: 2016
running time: 45 min.

synopsis

This narrative, multi-faceted exploration behind the scenes of medicine literally takes a look at what’s on the other side of the screen. At points with curiosity, at others with a personal, technical, or suspenseful tone, it uses examples of leading Czech doctors (a plastic surgeon, a neurosurgeon, and a cardiologist) to present the social connotations of a service that is acknowledged yet also undervalued.

biography

At Czech Television, producer Petr Kubica’s creative group focuses on developing socio-political, historical, and cultural programs such as the series Czech Journal and Tribes . He was also involved in the production of the films Televise bude! (2014) and Gottland (2014).

Heinz-Christian Strache – Ibiza video
Before the Austrian parliamentary elections in 2017, Heinz-Christian Strache, Head of the Freedom Party of Austria (FPÖ), agreed to support the alleged family of a Russian oligarch in exchange for counter-services. This agreement was revealed thanks to a video filmed in secret. A fundamental issue in ethical journalism is whether it is, at all, permissible within the public interest to provoke a situation and capture it all on a hidden camera.

Could politics appear attractive on TV?

The Magnificent Five (working title)
After living in an institution for twenty-eight years, Petr relocates to a training apartment, where he is preparing for a possible move into the “real world”. This untraditional look at a socially sensitive issue from the inside out, without the standard preconceived views of sympathy or irony, shows that the basic principles underlying interpersonal relationships are always the same – touching, humorous, and fragile.

Back in Time for the Weekend, The 70s
This reality show makes it possible for a British four-member family to travel in time and experience a different decade each week through “the life of one household” (starting with the 1950s and ending with a fictional future). This entertaining socio-cultural experiment moves smoothly between topics like fashion, technology, and politics, and even covers “what vacuum cleaners meant for women, and mortgages for the middle-class”.
