Jakub Špalek - A Life with the Jasper
This longitudinal documentary film was shot for over 23 years, observing the life of theatrical director Jakub Špalek. The First days of the shooting were during autumn 1989 when Jakub became one of the initiators of the Velvet Revolution. Jakub achieved his dream to open a theatre, and he is now chief of 'Theatre Jasper' in Prague. The film captures not only the difficulty in running an independent theatre, but also Jakub's turbulent private life, which is equally filled with love and drama.
