Scene from the film Jazz War

Jazz War

  • Czech Republic
Audio Tracks 

The director Vít Klusák shoots a film about his father – the famous music composer Emil Viklický but he refuses to act in the documentary. It is the portrait without the person being portrayed. So the author casts a double for the role of his father he has found due to a newspaper ad. The punch line of starting situation is that Klusák does not know his father in person and he meets (or passes) him due to the shooting of the film for the second time in his life.
