Storyline

The film provides a personally truthful yet harsh life story of a hero and dropout. The world-renowned photographer Jan Saudek, winning international awards and being exhibited abroad long before he had gained recognition in his native country, appears in many roles in front of the camera. Often changing them, he surprises or even shocks. Nevertheless, even the best illusionist is incapable of hiding from three cameras and the unmerciful eye of the director. War, suffering, losses, blind love, dreams of a family, the intangible glory of fame, poverty, condemnation, lack of appreciation counterbalanced by wealth and sky-high freedom in the unstoppable aging process. This and much more is portrayed in this riveting documentary film about the life and work of the most famous Czech photographer. Written by Czech film center
