Slovak Cinema: Guerillas

Slovenské kino: Partizáni slovenského filmu

Directing: Ivan Ostrochovský


The theme of war and the Slovak National Uprising has been appearing in Slovak film since the 1940s. As one of the most important milestones of Slovak history, it figured in the birth of “Slovak political mythology”. This documentary examines film portrayals of the most typical and interesting heroes and villains from a healthy distance, while also looking at film as a political instrument.
