"I’ve seen affairs for which every judge would have sentenced us for a moral threat."
Pavel Juráček, a director, screenwriter, signatory to Charta 77 was a key figure of Czech film in the sixties. The diary notes capture the rise and fall of a talented artist in the conflict with the social and culture circumstances as well as with his own bohemian personality. The diary offers not only an extraordinary insight into Juráček’s character, into his perception of the world and people surrounding him, but also the atmosphere of the ‘golden age of our cinema’ that is viewed from the inside by one of the figures of the New Wave. In his diaries Pavel Juráček left a work of great literature with hypnotic impressiveness, a free document about the heights and demons of artistic creation. The book won in the survey The Book of the Year 2004 of Lidove noviny and it also received a Magnesia Litera 2004 Award for the publishing act.
