(Oko nad Prahou) Director: Olga Špátová, CZ, 2010, Czech version, 78 min

The Eye Above Prague is a personal and political biography of the project of the Prague National Liberary, a.k.a. the Octopus, as well as the biography of the later life of its author, Jan Kaplicky. A note in his 1998 diary says, “To win the competition and find one love.” This quotation, read by his wife Eliska Kaplicky, opens the documentary. It seems that the world-renown Czech architect wrote it as a “script” not only of his last decade, but also of this film, which follows the rather dramatic civil story of creative imagination and a liaison between a man and a woman.
