    • Synopsis
    • Gottland provides an unconventional look at Czechoslovak 20th century history. This film comprised of short stories portrays peculiar fates – the Letná Plain with the largest statue of Stalin replaced by a huge billboard depicting Václav Klaus, the love affair between the actress Lída Baarová and Joseph Goebbels, the story of Eduard Kirchberger, a pilot/author in the services of the Czech State Security (STB), Tomáš Baťa’s vision of assembly line production and the tragic decision of Zdeněk Adamec to self-immolate as a form of protest against the state of society. This feature film was inspired by the bestselling book Gottland from the Polish journalist Mariusz Szczygiel.
