Pavel Tigrid - European

THURSDAY FORUM: PAVEL TIGRID – EUROPEAN, dir. Helena Třeštíková. Documentary film about the last days of Pavel Tigrid, a Czech journalist, followed by Q&A session with the director.

PAVEL TIGRID – EUROPEAN, dir. Helena Třeštíková, 2003, 57min, English subtitles

The profile of Pavel Tigrid opens up a free series made by the director Helena Trestikova bearing the title “The memory of the twentieth century“.
The double-time exile, the remarkable person of, in particular, post-February emigration and finally the minister of the government of the independent state, he did not have to doubt the value of his performed work. The Tigrid‘s ambitions, pathos and strong-mindedness come into play not only in the film’s presence, but they are mainly related to the history reminded by archival materials, the history, which he did never become a victim of. All things considered, he was even able to change the documentary in favour of his own picture. His narration came to the conclusion of accepting the life adventures, but the titles are followed by the statement that Tigrid chose freely to commit suicide.

Followed by Q&A session with the director.
