Czech Point: Czech Dream  {Ceský sen}

Czech Point: Czech Dream
Ceský sen

Czech Republic, 2004, 100 Minute Running Time
Genre/Subjects: Comedy, Documentary

From Stephen Holden in the New York Times: Maybe you have to have been brought up in a formerly Communist country to recognize and fully appreciate what might be called capitalist propaganda. What does it mean? It entails promoting a starry-eyed shop-till-you-drop ethos in a population accustomed to deprivation. How easy that appetite is to stimulate is demonstrated in the cheeky documentary "Czech Dream," whose creators, Vit Klusak and Filip Remunda, two students at the Prague Film Academy, used state money to stage an elaborate hoax.

DIRECTOR: Vit Klusak
