In May 2013, Czech Television marked the 60th anniversary of its first broadcast. The journalistic block “Television Celebration” represents the joint efforts of several beginning documentary filmmakers – students from FAMU who, under the guidance of their instructor Vít Klusák, have attempted to capture the Czech Republic’s largest television institutions during its celebrations in a fresh manner, objectively and occasionally critically as well.

The various segments were directed by Lumír Košař, Adéla Komrzýová, Karolína Peroutková, Zdeněk Chaloupka, Martina Ševčíková and Tereza Freyová. Produced by Czech Television in cooperation with FAMU.

From Love to Hatred 2: Domestic Violence on Men
After its successful documentary film featuring interviews with five abused women, Czech Television takes a look at another side of domestic violence. The stories of the film’s four male protagonists show that although the methods of violence are similar, the victims’ are in a much different position: Violence against men is usually questioned, and their partners, however manipulative and aggressive, are in a much more advantageous position, since the men, as representatives of the supposedly stronger sex, are generally not believed. The film is the first ever documentary to look at this socially taboo subject.

Infiltration: The Health Business
After fifteen years, Czech Television has filmed a sequel to its successful documentary cycle Infiltration. This time around, the filmmakers focused on psychosomatic medicine in the Czech Republic. Unhappy with the quality of medical care and with doctors’ lack of empathy and time, many patients have turned to “alternative” treatments. But if “alternative” treatment is offered by academically certified doctors and psychologists, are they just as responsible for their actions in non-medical facilities as they are in regular doctors’ offices and hospitals? The documentary uncovers the scandalous medical practices at one Prague facility, shot over the course of one year using a hidden camera.

Music by Zdeněk Liška
One of the best Czech composers of film soundtracks is often described as a genius of film scores. He was not afraid to experiment and the timelessness of his work is proven by the admiration of the world, including the generation who came to know his music only after his death.

Liebe Indigo
On the one hand, one of the most distinctive representatives of Czech alternative theatre, whose dramatic range spans several artistic categories. On the other hand, the child of dissidents who were forced to leave their homeland and adapt to conditions in a foreign land. Both sides to Halka Třešňáková come together in a profession that allows her to express her personal feelings. This portrait of an artist, actress and performer documents her artistic work as well as the circumstances that influenced her adolescence in a family that stood up against the totalitarian regime.

The People’s Militia
A look at a forgotten chapter in modern Czech history. The “armed fist of the working class,” formed from various factory guard units on the instigation of the Czechoslovak Communist Party, began operating under the guidance of the Central Union Committee in May 1945. After the communist takeover in 1948, the People’s Militia was sent upon orders of the Communist Party to “defend” the borders or to act against students, farmers, the church, demonstrators protesting the currency reform. Their actions against anti-regime gatherings in 1969 resulted in several deaths. They also acted brutally during the demonstrations in Prague in 1988 and 1989.

Don't give up: Climatic prisoners
In order to draw attention to the damage done to the environment, activists won't hesitate to hang a banner on the smokestack of a power plant, climb up a mining tower or protest at the bottom of a coal mine. Civil protests have always been a part of democracy and environmental protection. In recent years, however, there have been cases where activists are threatened with prosecution for non-violent protests. Does climate change also come with a “change in climate” in our society? Will people who peacefully protest against environmental damage end up in prison?

The Arch of Lights and Shadows
They met on a Friday and got married on the Sunday.  They had to run away from home to flee from their parents' fury, so they went on a honeymoon to the cannibals. There, they lost their illusions, their camera and nearly their lives as well.  Where others would've given up, American filmmakers Martin and Osa Johnson risked their lives to narrate an account of a vanishing wilderness. Their story is an authentic imprint of times when filming Africa was more dangerous than all the local predators and malaria. Their work fascinated the public including Ernest Hemingway, Charlie Chaplin and the British Royal Family. However, our era has forgotten them...

Pavel Brázda – Art Among People

This portrait of a distinctive Czech artistic personality looks at his relationship to pop-art, and was shot to mark the artist’s 90th birthday.

Who is fooling around here
He's one of the longest-serving psychiatrists and psychotherapists in the world. At the age of eighty, he still actively works at three clinics, writes a respected blog and publishes popular bestselling books. His dream was to become a general practitioner in Šumava, instead he ended up in the “crazy house”. He was behind the creation of many bluebooks for Czech dissidents and he was the first person in our nation's history to begin devoting himself to psychosomatic medicine. Above all, he is a people person and puts his life in the service of humankind in all its bizarre forms.
