Cernobila

Cernobila uses a local urban legend of a nurse from the Second World War to deal with our perception of the female role in war time, heroism and revenge, on the background of Czech-German relations. Based on several newspaper sources and word of mouth, we recreate the story by working with a collective imagination of the interviewees, based on their idea of who the bespoken woman and her life was or could be. Their words are in dialogue with different visual materials from famous film scenes, historical archives, experimental animation and documentary footage of their daily life. Their imagination is a key to the concept so the interviewees themselves are involved in the visual material choice. Combining documentary, archive and animation, the film will construct a visualisation of this woman and her story based on the collective imagination of people living in Trebon in the present day.
