Lions of Czech Film Series:


THE PLASTIC PEOPLE OF THE UNIVERSE


 

This documentary traces the life and times of the Czech underground band that became a symbol of the anti-Communist struggle of the seventies and eighties.

The film examines the band over three decades of activities.Although the Plastic People never defined themselves as a political ensemble, in the 1970s and 1980s, they were one of the symbols of resistance against the communist state power in Czechoslovakia. The arrest and imprisonment of the Plastics horrified the public and contributed to the origin of Charter 77 in the Czech Lands. The so-called third culture thus started to form around the band, a culture where the regime could not exercise its influence. (2001, 74 min., in Czech with English subtitles, DIR: Jana Chytilová)
