Marriage Stories: Twenty Years Later - Zuzana and Vladimir

Zuzana and Vladimir - Vladimír came back from a long stay in New York where he lived on photography not so long before new shooting. This experience influences his life so he all the time everything measures and compares. Zuzana firstly refused the new shooting and she agreed after several years when she divorced Vladimír. She explains that with a more and more intensive need of independence and self-activity. Their three daughters (18, 17 and 14 years) understand the decision of their parents to divorce. Vladimír is trying to build a photography studio and use his experience but he’s not very successful for whole time of our shooting. After the divorce he checks out the common flat and figuratively speaking ends like a homeless.

The series Marriage Stories (Manželské etudy) was broadcasted by Czechoslovak Television in 1987 and single episodes were about lives of six young married couples in the six-year period from their wedding (1980 – 1986). Czech Television together with a director Helena Třeštíková decided to continue in this project – to find monitored pairs and to record their contemporary lives (1999 – 2005).

The gained material became a testimony not only of human psyche, but also of present and changes which were brought together with new time after the fall of totalitarianism.
