Airship

Vzducholoď

Color: Colour
Synopsis

The latest film by this legendary experimental filmmaker puts together news footage of giant airships that emphasize their monstrous size and nearly nightmarish impression using realistic images in which the filmmaker nevertheless emphasizes their mythological and mysterious nature, as well as the sense of awe they evoked in their time.

The golden age of the airship was in the interwar period, when they flew to the North Pole, crossed the Atlantic, and even circumnavigated the globe. During the war, they were used for naval reconnaissance, especially by Germany, and to engage in airborne terror against civilians. Later, they were used (primarily in the United States) as airborne radar stations.
