Abstract

At the end of the 2019 Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, Jan Čulík and Dominika Švecová talk about the most interesting films featured there. The interview starts with discussion a sponsorship controversy: It has transpired that the festival is being financially sponsored by two armament factories and by the tobacco firm Philip Morris. A group of well-know Czech film makers have protested to the management of the festival about this, but their protest has been rejected. - Nevertheless, many of the films featured at the festival highlight the importance of the plight of minorities, ostracised by the social majorities. Two remarkable recent Czech feature films, Miss Hanoi and On the Roof, feature sympathetically the members of the Vietnamese minority living in the Czech Republic. The interview was broadcast by the Czech cable TV station Regionalnitelevize.cz from 5th July 2019.
