Product description: Pavel Kolaja - Krajina osudu / The Landscape of a Life
The film takes us into the landscape of fateful places and moments of creation of the writter, dramatist, actor and pedagogue Ivan Vyskočil (b. 1929). The actual enviroment acts out real motifs from his stories and plays for us. We are witness to meetings with his colleagues and friends (like actor Leoš Suchařípa, theater maker Jiří Suchý, and dramatist Václav Havel). We also look at his work with students at the Theater Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (DAMU), at the classes of his original authorial discipline, Inter(acting) With the Inner Partner. In the film you will also hear Vyskočil´s recollections of his creative and personal relationships with Swiss dramatist Fridrich Dürrenmatt and Czech philosopher Jan Patočka. Accompanied by the singing of Vyskočil´s close friend Eva Olmerová, we continuously return to the monument of the unfinished bridge, which becomes the leitmotiv of the entire film.
