Burning Bush (Hořící keř)

In January 1969 student Jan Palach set himself on fire in Prague in protest against the Soviet occupation. Concentrating on the impact his sacrifice had within the social and political climate, Holland acutely depicts a web of conflicts among the student protesters, the police and the media, all trying to advance their own interests while watching their backs. A panoramic and highly dramatic portrayal of the Czech experience at the beginning of Normalisation.

Agnieszka Holland, CZ, 2013, 206 min, English subtitles
