    • Synopsis
    • A docu-drama about Zuzana Mináčová, the 84-year old photographer who was present at the birth of Slovak film. Her pictures of film stars have literally become legendary. However, for many years she did not allow even her nearest and dearest to view her terrible memories of the past and the years spent in a concentration camp. In the full-length documentary with feature reconstructions, Zuzana Mináčová takes the viewer through many of the significant events of the 20th century, through Fascism, communism and capitalism; she reveals the principles of her art work, takes the viewers behind the scenes of taking pictures of film stars and through her dramatic personal life.
