Synopsis:
Epic, expansive and deeply passionate, 'CzechMate' is the definitive work on the Czechoslovak New Wave. This extraordinary documentary, a labour of love filmed over eight years, has unparalleled depth and scale. Starting out as a portrait of the much-loved director Jiri Menzel, the film expands to encompass interviews with most of the key figures of the time, including Vera Chytilova, Miloš Forman, Jan Nemec, Ken Loach, Ivan Passer, and Andrzej Wajda. Together they provide a provocative, witty and intimate insight into one of cinema's most important and influential movements.
