Czechoslovakia / 93 min.
The new concept of Otakar Vávra could have been tried by the “freshmen” of the Department of Directing in the academic year 1957/58. Vávra chose them himself at the entrance exams and in the year, he gathered what would become great figures of the Czechoslovak New Wave – Chytilová, Menzel, Schmidt and Schorm. In their early studies, they had to deal with various exercises – a documentary or a studio scene.
