THE UNDISGUISED NATION
This edition of the Czech Journal is about Croatia in the summer when it becomes a Czech enclave and how the Croats see the Czechs. The film was inspired by the article “The Unhappy Tourist Švejk” by Croatian journalist Boris Dežulović.
Will the Croats help us see ourselves without rose-coloured glasses? Can we bring back something other than a tan and refreshed lungs? What does it say about the Czechs that almost a million of us travel to Croatia in the holidays? This is a story of love and hate, a satire based on national stereotypes and a reflection on them as well as on the social role of the sea.
