Konec stalinizma na Češkem / Konec stalinismu v Čechách / The Death of Stalinism in Bohemia

Jan Švankmajer
( Athanor )

Czech Republic , 1990, 35mm, 9'57''

Stalin's bust is opened on an operating table, and this leads into an animated sequence that depicts Czech history from 1948, when it was taken over by Communists, to 1989, when the Velvet Revolution took place. Background knowledge of the historical context is required for one to fully understand and appreciate the entirely visual film.
