Reunion in Prague is the love story between American actress Hildy Brooks and Czech sculptor Olbram Zoubek. The two first met for a brief moment in 1968 during the "Prague Spring" in Communist Czechoslovakia. Although Brooks and Zoubek would not meet again until 1990, after the fall of communism, their romantic, artistic and philosophical exchange continued via a constant flow of letters throughout the intervening quarter-century. These letters serve as the source material for Reunion in Prague.
“The pressure between a sense of gravity and the longing to fly, between contemporaneity and heading towards being outside any time sphere, between the weight of matter and the struggle to deny it, between perfection and the possibility to reach it, have always excited me. I should be glad if my sculptures stood firmly on their feet with their heads directed to the stars.” -Olbram
