24th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
A multilayered documentary film draws the viewer into a hospital environment, where we meet not only patients, with their fears, pains, and joys, but also doctors. Jan Špata’s brilliant, sensitive camera work allows us to penetrate the souls of the various figures, even touching at the end on the serious topic of suicide.
Evald Schorm (1931-1988) was one of the most prominent figures of the Czech New Wave and was considered an extraordinary talent of Czech film. After 1968 he was banned from filmmaking and began to pursue theater.
