    • Synopsis
    • Velvet Terrorists is a film about minor and foiled terrorist plots in former Czechoslovakia. The film focuses on three protangonists. The first one wanted to blow up a decorated stage during the May 1st celebration in the 70s. The second one planned to assassinate the President and start an anticommunist revolution but his letter to the cia was so naive that nobody cared to reply. The third one blew up communist billboards. Actes that were once considered criminal are now viewed as acts of heroism. The film is about our relative views of history and their perspectives from which one can view these individuals and their actions.
