FAMU Documents

Two documentary films by students of the Film and TV School of Academy of Performing Arts in Prague.

Q&A with the directors

Karel Lampa,
directed by Natalie Cisarovska, 30 min.
A documentary portrait of Karel Lampa, whose life is inextricably linked with theatre. Paradoxically, the son of an operetta star and a director of the Operetta of the National Theatre in Brno did not have enough time for theatre. From the age of fifteen, he made a living as a gay prostitute and the whirl of sex, drugs and disco music in the post-revolutionary years chewed him up and spitted him out with the HIV virus.

In Masaryk's hands, directed by Jan Rousek, 52 minutes
In 1928, during a state visit in Zdar nad Sazavou, Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk raised into his arms a three-year´s old Eva Neugebauer. From the meeting was created an iconic image linking the symbolism of Masaryk statehood, the rising generation of the young Czechoslovakia.  Later on the photography is published, just before the protectorate, in the issue stamps. Eva, celebrity of the democracy, which was barely enough to get in, is leaving in the early 50´s. From the Bohemian Forest till Kalamazoo in the USA - where she visited her great-nephew, director Jan Rousek.

Jan Rousek (1984) studied history and now studying documentary filmmaking at FAMU.
