Obrazy starého sveta

Directed by Dušan Hanák
Czechoslovakia, 1972
Documentary

Synopsis

Somehow the all-encompassing benefits of the socialist “paradise” of Czechoslovakia bypassed the group of old farmers shown in this 1972 documentary almost entirely, and they are shown bravely coping with dire poverty and privation.
