Under Under Ground

Audio Tracks 

A documentary examining the relationship between underground and “overground”, questioning the meaning and metamorphoses of the term underground. A film about people from former (Czecho-)Slovakia, who were (or not), and others, who are. A film from the underground. Dozens of civil defence structures remain under the city from the past times.They are kept in order in case something happened. The new caretaker of some of them is a student of biology at the Faculty of Natural Sciences. Tree other people testify in the underground as well: the first was an underground architect during thecommunist era, the second a filmmaker and the third a singer.
