This graduate project film made by an Indian student of the Documentary Department looks at the issue of racism in Czechoslovakia. One specific story of love and hate, of prejudice and good will, is expanded to include the experiences of other foreigners in the country. In addition to the protagonist’s narrative, the film is accompanied by a commentary by Antonín Navrátil.


Viswanath Krishna was one of the first foreigners to study at FAMU’s Documentary Department. One other of his films has been preserved in addition to his graduate project, specifically Woman 68.
