Holy Trinity of Slovak Film
The very first student films of Slovak FAMU graduates were closely connected with the Holy Trinity of the Slovak new wave: Juraj Jakubisko, Elo Havetta, Dušan Hanák. Their predecessors – Š. Uher, P. Solan or S. Szomoányi – made student films as well but only their younger schoolmates, the big enthusiasts to authorial films, were able to exceed the limits of school filmmaking. They didn’t just learn the craft. They created short opuses showing signs of their exceptionality.
