Fruit Falling On Its Own

Ovoce samo padající

Directing: Petr Záruba


Documentary film about a painter and a graphic artist Jiří John who is a significant representant of the Czech post-war art. He was born in 1923 in Třešť, in the central Bohemia, the local nature inspired many of his works. The nature, to which he was
closely attached, was the main source of his themes. John´s work was fully appreciated after his death in 1972. The documentary film Fruit falling of itself is a fragile and attentive portrait which was realized with John´s wife, also an artist, Adriena Šimotová and his brother Vladimír John. His friends – theoretician of arts Jaromír Zemina and poet and translator Jan Vladislav – complete this portrait with their erudite notice.
