Velvet Terrorists (Sametoví teroristé)

Blurring the boundaries between fiction and reality, heroism and stupidity, past and present, Velvet Terrorist portrays three men who took up arms against communism and were jailed for it; Stano failed to blow up an official party gathering; Fero tried to contact the CIA before attempting to assassinate the president; and Vladimír blew up Communist billboards. Re-enacting their heroic acts, while struggling with their mundane, unhappy lives, brings a lot of tongue-in-cheek humour to these visually impressive and tragicomic tales.
