Searching for the President
(Hledá se prezident) Director: Tomáš Kudrna, CZ, 2013, Czech version, 105 min
In 2013, we experienced a unique moment in our modern history. For the first time ever, Czechs were able to choose their president through direct elections. Throughout the land, people awaited a father of the nation - a wise man (or even a woman, perhaps), who is the purest of them all, and can thus offer absolution. Will they, themselves, be able to choose such a president better than the politicians would?
