Old Shatterhand Came to See Us

  • Slovakia
Audio Tracks 

A documentary féerie about the problems with tourists from abroad. How foreigners “invade” our homeland.

A series of minute observations on life under so-called “real socialism” provokes sparkling ironic and satirical commentary—a broadside against the bankrupt Communist system.
