ČHOS (Československé Hraničářské a Obranné Společenství)

Marie Lukáčová

Českoslovensé pohraničí (Opava, Kateřinky), Opava,

Interview with members of a fictitious Czech border Defence Society (CBDS) which represents a form of docu-fiction. In the first half, the viewer is confronted with historical information, personal life\'s tragedies and scenery shots of the ruins after the infamous Czechoslovak financial contribution (Bunkers of the pre-war fortification). In the second part of this movie the reality ceases to be true. Film artwork is no more in reality but its actuality is modified into construct of unknown knight group of guerrillas, who lives in the historic fortifications and fighting against ubiquitous air supply. Although they commit so futile, but refreshing fight. And how the classic says: \"This is a real transformation - when you try to talk about new things and use old language.
