Small Russian Clouds of Smoke (52min) and Intruder (26min)

The upcoming four video screenings have a common link – what did the Czechs inherit from Communism? The first two films portray two different types of Russian ‘immigrants’ to Czechoslovakia. Jan Šikl’s film Small Russian Clouds of Smoke (Ruské obláčky dýmu, 2005) brings to life the unfortunate story of Vladimir Popov, a rich Russian émigré, who settled in Czechoslovakia with his family in the 1920s to escape the Bolshevik regime. The filmmaker collected private film material from the family together with their history as for all parts of his Private Century series. The second film Intruder (Okupantka, 2005, dir. Šárka Slezáková) is a portrait of a Russian nurse who came to Czechoslovakia with the Russian Army in the 1970s. All she wanted was to lead a happy and satisfied life in her new home, but only after 1989 she realized to her dismay that her happiness meant unhappiness of the others.

 

Film Club video series are organized in cooperation with Irena Kovářová.
