Synopsis
This look at life in the post-war years in Czechoslovakia, Poland and Bulgaria was originally intended to be tetralogy. However, as a result of the break between Stalin and Tito, the fourth episode about Yugoslavia was never made. The part about Czechoslovakia is a reflection on our country’s history from the 15th century to 1918, and includes the story of Baťa’s factories.

DETAIL:
“We’ll meet in the ring for celluloid fighters. This was and is the most complicated film I have ever made. I have resolved never to shoot such a film or to work in this way again.” Joris Ivens
