The Joy of Thinking

director: Tomáš Škrdlant
original title: Radost z myšlení
country: Czech Republic
year: 2023
running time: 52 min.

synopsis

The documentary film presents in an unconventional way the personality of Zdeněk Neubauer, a peculiar philosopher, scientist, academic, mystic and mycologist, dissident and friend of Václav Havel, who became an expert on everything he turned his attention to - and yet he preferred to walk barefoot. Zdeněk Neubauer simply enjoyed thinking - and he knew how to pass on his enthusiasm.
