After Late Night Talks with Mother and Landscape of My Heart, Jan Němec has come up with another film that hovers on the edge of experimental documentary and film essay. The Ferrari Dino Girl describes the circumstances surrounding Němec filming of the Soviet invasion on the streets of Prague on 21 August 1968. Out of this comes four reels of invaluable footage, that had to be shown to the rest of the world. Together with two friends, the director travelled with the priceless material, containing sixteen minutes of unedited film, across the Iron Curtain to Austria. Jan Němec examines the reality of his life in relation to Czech history, where intimate chronicles are inseparably linked with major historical events. He incorporates new film roles (in which he is played by Karel Roden) into the original footage which flew round the world over forty years ago and boasted ‘bigger audiences than Steven Spielberg’.
